  • Only part of the repair was fixed. The path around the property is broken away from ise view street sign around corner onto dunkirk up to the electric box as per original report above. Please can this all be repaired. There is a hole under the electric box gaping into the property fencing.

  • No it has not been fixed, can you please read my second update and look at the photos posted as it is not acceptable for only fixing a quarter of the fault.

  • Hello,

    This is now the 4th time we have asked you to repair the crumbling pathway in this area. Twice you have attended and sprayed paint around the damaged area and then you did place some tarmac behind the telegraph pole at beginning of Ise View Road, but this has caused damage to our private fence. The front of the pole was not fully secured and the tarmac there is still loose.

    The street sign next to the pole is also surrounded by crumbling tarmac.

    As noted and shown with images above, the tarmac around the green communication box is crumbling and there is now a hole under the fence into our property. Our front garden area has loose tarmac chunks which regularly fall from this area.

    We have cleared the area of weeds twice in order for you to repair the path, as we cannot assess the damage to our fence until you have made the area safe.

    There are now obvious holes alongside our fence and into the central area of the pathway.

    I have attached photographs that replicate the original - these were taken at 0625 today (08/08/19) - this will show in detail the condition of the area.

    I understand that the repair to the whole of Dunkirk Avenue road and pathway has been placed on hold due to the lack of NCC funding and the ongoing 'work' agreement between KBC and the Leyton Williams project at the apparent 'trout farm' / waste disposal facility as whilst the heavy dirt lorries and plant transporters are using the road, the surface is failing. This however, should not put the safety of our property at risk, nor for persons walking on the public path.

  • Hi,

    I believe Ian Smith, an area manager has picked up this complaint - please be aware that there is now further damage after residental weed clearing of the public space and the telecoms cable is visible.

    Heavy rains have also loosened further tarmac layers at the rear of the communications box and rubbish is falling from this area into the private garden along with lumps of tarmac and gravel.
