Fence opposite stubbin farm

Reported by joan smith at 10:54, Wed 21 June 2017

Sent to Kirklees Borough Council 2 minutes later

The fence is broken and is gradually falling down its too thick wood for a nail form us to repair. the fence is a barrier between the road (no footpath)and Manchester road. A slip could lead to a bad accident as pedestrian- there are lots who walk this road- could slip down the banking on to Manchester road. I think a nail in time would save a bigger repair bill . Safety first please. Joan Smith

  • This needs sorting now whilst a nail in time will save time and money later. Only a viewing needed now?

  • I have written to Councillor Rob Walker who has also spoken to Kirklees about this broken fence and his reply was that someone will be sent to inspect the fence. Here's hoping that happens soon.It us holiday time at the present.

  • Thank you for your fix my street request. Please see below for update and information about changes to how we are dealing with fix my street requests:

    On checking, ranger inspected not a public right of way, rather it’s the fence at the side of the road. Been passed on and updated as follows: Location is subject to a routine scheduled safety inspection undertaken by trained engineers.

    Any repairs to the fencing will be noted and programmed as required.
