Builders acces equipment blocking public pavement

Reported via desktop in the Public Right of Way footpath category anonymously at 12:38, Fri 27 January 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4176492.

The builders at 54 Stembridge Road have been blocking the public pavement with an access ramp to thier skip for more than two weeks, this is left in situ both over night and over the weekend. This ramp is a Heath and Safety Hazard. The ramp also blocks out an additional parking space, which a skip licence does not warrant. In addtion these builders fail to adequetly clean the pavement from excaavtion waste, the pavement is now soiled with sticky clay and other excavation waste. Nuisance builders who do not respect the public footpath!

  • These photo's were taken 31st January. The previous issue where the pavement was blocked has now moved and increased in length to the public highway. The length is approximately 10m (3 car parking places). Parking for residence living in the road has become impossible due to this builder. I have checked and there is no skip licence been awarded or even applied. There is no lights attached to the skip which is required. There is also a problem with the street lighting, which I previously reported, has still not been addressed which adds to the problem.

  • These photos were taken on 21st February. How many times do residents of Stembridge Road need to report this blatant disregard to abide by the rules and the bylaws before Bromley Council actually do something about it. Bromley Council say they will investigate this matter and contact the builder but let them continue blocking the pavement and Road with a skip that has no license no lights at night and a ramp that is the length of two cars. Perhaps when someone is injured because of the lack of action taken by the council when they have been informed of the hazard they might be held partly responsible.

  • The builder has been advised to apply for a temporary highway hoarding licence in order to fence off the area used to store the skip and ramp. We shall continue to monitor to ensure this is complied with. The skip is currently licensed until 1 March 2023 after which an extension will need to be applied for. The skip company has also been contacted in order for lights to be placed on it.

  • Despite multiple complaints the builders at 54 Stembridge Road continue to cause a health hazard with their skip ramp. The ramp is continualy strewn across the pavement it has multiple sharp screw heads protruding from it, which are circled in the photographs. It is merely a matter of time before a pedestrian gets severly injured by this health hazard. Bromley need to take more decisive action, if no action is taken by the council we will contact the HSE to inspect the site.

  • This problem has not been resolved and if LBB do not take action contact with the HSE is going to be the next step as this is dangerous. Please confirm if a temporary highway hoarding licence has been issued.
