Dangerous dip in pavement

Reported in the Pavement Damaged/Cracked category anonymously at 15:50, Mon 16 September 2013

Sent to Barnet Borough Council 5 minutes later

Directly outside The Old Mill House there is a very dangerous dip in the level of the pavement where an area of tarmac has sunk. As well as posing a danger to pedestrians there is also the potential for damage to the cellar at The Old Mill House due to water ingress (see pictures).

  • Until this questionnaire, there has been no response from the Council to the problem. I will write to Barnet directly as there are no updates either.

  • No response from Barnet regarding this or another issue left with Fixmystreet shortly afterwards. The issue of the collapsing pavement is getting much worse as Winter continiues with rain (and in time snow and ice) so it needs to be repaired urgently.

  • 23rd November 2013 - still no response or action. I have attached another updated photo. Please deal with this problem urgently as it is getting much worse.

  • Three months later and nothing has been done. The sunken pavement has not been fixed, it has got much worse, and poses a danger to pedestrians. There is also a strong risk of water ingress and damage to the cellar of the Old Mill House, a Grade II Listed building of local historical importance. Redress will be made of the Council as a result of any consequential damage to the property. Please fix this problem NOW as matter of extreme urgency.
