Unsafe trench at side of footpath

Reported anonymously at 14:28, Tuesday 19 February 2019

The occupier of number 137 has built a new wall adjoining the footpaths the front of their property, however, because they’ve built the new wall nearer to their house than the previous fence, there is now a ditch/trench between it and the footpath which is unprotected. When it is dark and especially when one or more vehicles (cars and or large vans) park on the footpath (which happens almost everyday), the ditch/trench is difficult to see. I can confirm from personal experience that it IS possible to not see it in these circumstances and cause a twisted ankle! Ouch!
