  • Could you pass on this message to the council please as you can see from the picture that I have just taken, it is deteriorating quite rapidly now. We would like some sort of response from the council, as people live on the street. And the failing works that have been carried out not only present the obvious hazard on the public footpath. But also it is in-between a butchers shop and a restaurant creating a trap for dirt attracting unwanted visitors that the residents are not to keen on and I am suer from the food outlets point of view, they will want all aspects of health and safety to be up to slandered. Obviously this is imperative part of their business.
