Footpath impassable due to subsidence and flooding

Reported via desktop in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category anonymously at 09:26, Sunday 3 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2458307.

The footpath is impassable and dangerously slippery/submerged when raining. Dangerous when frozen.

Adjacent to disabled pensioners property making it impossible to pass safely.

Appears to be due to lack of maintenance (not addressed on over 30 years) and failed subsequent work affecting drainage. The roadway drains onto the pavement and the water cannot escape or drain further away collecting in front of properties across entire footpath.
