Degraded and fallen away dangerous pavement

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category by Tim Dobson at 08:48, Sun 19 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3010666.

The pathway has fallen away and degraded to such an extent that it is a very real hazard to older (and all) pedestrians walking along this already sloping pavement along Ecton lane. The drain has been repaired and unblocked but the pavement situation (Lose gravel and soil) will almost certainly fill and block it again.

  • I am not very happy with the tarmac that has been put over the previously grassed area infront of my house. All other houses along Ecton Lane have grass in front, now we have an ugly patch which will attract vehicle parking and stopping. When the drain floods and it oftern does the water will not have anywhere to soak away so the puddling will be worse than it was previously and almost ceratinly cause another problem. Why was the grass not reinstated to keep the look of the lane continous ?
