Sink hole 3m deep by 5m wide (subsurface) outside 3 Staunton House. This has not been fixed for over two months.

Reported via desktop in the Other damage to pavement i.e. cobbles, raised mound/surface category by Richard Barter at 18:27, Wednesday 14 February 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5578007.

The sink hole is located in Staunton Coleford and has been open for over two months with the road being closed. The water was draining into it from the surface but now the water flow is coming directly into the hole at the subsurface level as well. It is draining away to the East. The volume of water can be large and due to the flow in the sink hole it is continuing to erode under the road from the bottom of the sink hole. Please can you give me an update on this problem.
