These kerb stones are continually being knocked out and dislodged by a number of heavy vehicles (including refuse collection vehicles) that navigate a narrow corner and always drive over the corner kerb. The dislodged stones are a tripping hazard for the many people who walk down Church Street. The church is in constant use and open to visitors every day. It is also a venue for exhibitions and concerts in addition to church services, weddings and funerals. It needs to be repaired with a metal kerb as this is a constant problem and previous repairs last only a matter of a few weeks. The church will be open during Oxford Art Weeks from Saturday 18th until Monday 27th May.

Thank you for your report. We have looked at it and found that it was a duplicate of another report. We have entered the loose kerbstones in to our repair programme and will look at a longer term solution.

Thank you for the repair that was carried out by several workmen on Wednesday 15/05/19. Unfortunately, the refuse vehicle drove over the kerb on the morning of 16/05/19 and dislodged one of the stones. As this is a recurring theme, perhaps a metal kerb may be a more long term and cost effective solution?

Agree with above the previous repair are a waste of money.
