This footpath is a disgrace. It hasn’t been cleaned for over 3 years and the drains are blocked. It is overgrown with weeds and leaves.

  • Drains have been partly cleared. Contacted ESCC who state RDC are responsible for clearing footpath. Contacted them still nothing done which is the usual response.

  • Waste of time asking for this to be done as the problem allegedly gets sorted, but in reality it’s a quick blow of debris from one side of the path to,the other away from drains taking 5 men 5 minutes! Street light on pathway now completely obscured by trees too. No need for further updates as it won’t be dealt with anyway!
