  • Investigation: Completed (Defect Found), Defect Repair: Not Started - Regarding the vegetation adjacent to Warkton Road, we are pleased to confirm that a works order has been raised to cut back this vegetation from the footway. This should be completed within six months’ time. Please be assured that you will receive an update once repairs are concluded. We usually find these defects are tended to within 13 weeks.

  • Still an accident waiting to happen! I walked down here with a pushchair and could hardly even get onto the path, imagine a wheelchair user. Disgusting from the council this hasn’t been fixed already, such a shame to see this has been reported and no one has done anything! And a 13 week wait for this is insane. Someone is going to get hurt or even worse as there is barely even a footpath.
