The retaining wall of the private property next to the footpath, has collapsed. The retaining wall is approximately 25 feet in height. The footpath as a result is damaged. This is a concern for pedestrians due to the soil fallen away from the retaining wall. In addition tarmac has fallen away from the footpath. In other areas the soils has fallen away from under the tarmac. And in other parts the tarmac has fallen away exposing the soil underneath. The wall is on private property and being mended by the owners. However, the wall is on the right hand-side of the footpath thereby posing a hazard.
