  • Picture attached - issue kindly reported by another resident. Pole has always been located in the middle of the (relatively narrow) pavement. It's a shame the works referred to haven't been utilised to move this pole / widen the pavement. The area is heavily utilised by parents with prams / buggies and with the increased traffic in the area there is a risk that someone will be hurt when stepping into the road to avoid it.
