The council owned land bordering my house, has been deteriorating for years and now has subsided below the foundation level of the house, exposing underground drainage pipes. We are concerned as to significant damage that may occur to our own home and services, resulting in a claim to the Council. This land needs to be reinstated urgently and bought back to the level needed to protect the services and our house from subsidence.
