Broken retaining wall

The wall is part of the highway and not within the boundary of Barnards Farm House or Cottage. In other words it is the council's responsibility to make it safe. The loose bricks have, I believe, simply been balanced roughly were they should be but remain a danger to children who like to walk on it. John Cottis, Barnards Farm Cottage

  • This issue remains a risk, and last week a child lost his footing walking across the top of the wall. I do not know how badly (if at all) he was injured, but there is an ongoing risk of injury. My neighbours have placed warning signs on the wall, but they do not stay owing to the inclement weather and other conditions. Please prioritise this issue: it will be relatively easy to fix. Thank you.
