Failed surface to footpath and council-owned driveway access over verge

Reported via desktop in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category anonymously at 12:16, Mon 23 November 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2401236.

The surface to access our driveway including where it crosses the pedestrian footpath has completely failed in the last twelve months and is in a dangerous and unsightly condition (cracked, crumbling and partly covered in slippery moss). We would like to address the issue as it represents a danger to pedestrians and vehicles alike and will only deteriorate still further through the winter months. It looks like the whole area needing repair may fall under local authority responsibility but we would be happy to discuss if it partly overlaps with our boundary.
