Footpath surface missing and unsafe

Reported in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 02:33, Sat 8 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1652551.

The footpath surface outside number 58 The Lawns, Corby, NN18 0TA is completely chewed up leaving it uneven and with loose stones and tarmac making it dangerous especially as we have many bungalows and older people in the area.

I originally reported this in August 2017 but no action was taken and it has since deteriorated further.

    I find it unbelievable that someone has inspected and thinks it’s acceptable to leave the footpath in this condition?

    Rest assured that if this isn’t addressed and any of the children or elderly people in the area have an accident on this I will be passing this to them to assist them with a claim.

    Thank you, Darren Gordon.
