Concrete slab situated on the Chapel Street

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by John Wells at 11:22, Mon 22 May 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4581957.

We have recently moved into Chapel Street and are concerned about this problem. The slab is approx. 1 metre in length and is sited opposite my house (19 Chapel Street). I do not have the luxury of off-road parking, therefore my family's cars have to park on the road opposite this slab. Passing vehicles (including large refuse lorries and large delivery trucks for the air-conditioning business situated in the building behind the slab), regularly use this road and naturally try to avoid driving over the slab, thereby causing an extreme risk of clipping and damaging our cars. The road is particularly narrow at this point which obviously heightens the risk of collision. Can you please arrange for the slab to be lifted and removed and the resulting dip in the road to be filled with tarmac? This is not a major job, but it would help relieve us all enormously if you can get it seen to. Thank you very much for giving this matter your attention.
