Cant't Understand why this is still ongoing and the council have Not Taken action
After a couple of years of reporting there is still SEVERE mud on road, and broken bricks in the road opposite the farm gate.. Considering the street lighting it out, I have witnessed, a broken brick fly from between the tyres of a truck, cars skim the verge were there is NO demarcation between the mud on the road and the verge, and cyclists fall on the mud and rubble. HOW do we get enforcement/ action? Can I privately prosecute?
Hello, We have informed our street cleansing team to investigate. Ref:STCL-001486. Regards Customer Soloutions

Maybe enforcing the perpetrator here would be more cost effective than using the local tax payers money to keep clearing up after a private company. What motivation could the council have for NOT doing this. There is something going on here that I am not understanding.

Still open, via questionnaire

Got my car cleaned today on polhill. By the time I got home it had mud splatters on it. Fed up with the mud predominantly on the Orpington bound side of the road. Lorries often pulling out of a side road along the main road clearly not using any wheel wash facility. If they are, it doesn't work. Been going on for what seems like years. Can Sevenoaks Council please act on this? Why has it been allowed to go on for so long? It wasn't as bad as normal but still obvious mud on the road.

Went down Polhill yesterday. Still a load of muck on the roads being traversed from a business along the road. Do they have immunity from the council / EA? I work in the construction industry. All sites must demonstrate how they ensure the roads / public highways are kept clean with such techniques as wheelwash. If they fail, they can be prosecuted. With that in mind, why has this been allowed to continue for years? You know about the problem. If you know it needs reporting to another department, perhaps you could do this rather than asking members of the public to do it for you?
