Hole in footpath right next to my house 179, a cavity i can put my hand into, im extremely concerned about warer damage

Reported in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category by Cassie Gilmore at 14:07, Friday 24 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2214961.

Hello. I previously contacted KBC as i wasn't sure who was responsible for the paths etc, KBC said they forwarded my concerns onto the street doctor department with yourselves back in May 2020. I understand times have been testing so left it for a while but i haven't heard anything and that was a few months ago now. The problem is there is a hole in footpath right next to my house 179 big enough to put my hand in and I'm becoming increasingly concerned that water flooding in there is causing damage (rising damp to my property) i have noticed damp while removing wall paper and i shall monitor accordingly. Also the gully that goes from the drain to the road isn't secure and if i car parks on it, the weight raises it in the middle creating a gap for water to flood in and a trip hazard albeit not huge its still not secure. I don't park on it as i know it does this but i cannot stop other people. Can someone please respond and advise. Thank very much.

Kind regards

Cassie Gilmore 179 King Street. NN168QS
