Outside 54/56/58 Westfield Terrace

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 11:36, Mon 2 November 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2367257.

These particular pot holes have now been here for over 2 months and the noise of cars hitting them and the debris is unacceptable.

These holes have been repaired on many occasions resulting in the debris to be left outside my house and against my car - I am in the process of applying to the council regarding parking permits for Westfields Terrace (many of which who have lived here many years are disgusted with the way the country coil has let properties on the high street park outside our properties and not within the boundaries of their own properties which all provide off road parking).

Their additional cars cause traffic to mount the curbs and some dropped curbs need to be removed as they are no longer required i.e. the property adjacent to 56/58 being given permission for a car park to the rear of the new properties gaining access via Westfield Terrace - The Occupants of these properties are parking their cars and large vans on the adjacent side of Westfield terrace causing a ridiculous amount of traffic for a back street especially in front of our semi and the Bungelow on the corner whose wall has been regularly hit by lorries trying to turn and avoid access parked cars.

I have lived here now for near on 20 years and have always approved of council decisions however it seems that lately they are not looking after their long term home owners and allowing an unfair amount of property reuse along our road.

The road is such a mess due to the lorries and traffic using it as a cut through to avoid the town and access Northampton Road down the street to avoid the town and this road is not big enough or in a good enough condition to provide enough visibility for pedestrians or drivers trying to use this road.

There have been many near misses with cars taking the bend to fast by Joes Bar on the wrong side of the road into oncoming traffic.

Instead of patching up insignificant holes try benefiting the longstanding community and offer bays for the houses.

  • The arrow on the map is the wrong end of Westfields terrace and need to be moved towards the bottom end where Joes Bar is located (also typo in first report ‘county coil’ should read County council)
