  • I reported this problem in November. It says that 2380292 is a duplicate of 2368975 and that one or other has been closed. I have left it over ten days to see if anything has happened and not heard from you. The photos show the area concerned and were taken in November. Since then we have had a lot of heavy rain and the whole area is now much, much worse: the whole of the tarmac area is covered in a thick film of mud. It is dangerous and slippery to walk on and only a matter of time before one of the elderly residents trips and falls. One of the lady's sons at No 8 has a Nissan SUV and insists when visiting on parking on the grass in front of the bungalow. The new residents at No 9 regularly drive their Jeep and other car to park in front of their house, and the continual use by motor traffic along this approach which is designed primarily for emergency and occasional access is causing escalating damage. Please see that something is done about this hazard!

  • These photos were taken just before Christmas and show just how much worse this situation has become since I last reported. The puddles have not dried up for several months. Both need to be filled and leveled, the footpath needs widening and the verge edges need to be repaired properly so that vehicles can no longer encroach upon the grassed areas. It is thick mud all along this area.
