Lay-by in front of my cottage

Reported in the Road markings category anonymously at 12:38, Mon 16 February 2015

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 2 minutes later

Writing on lay-by has worn off - people are parking lorries and cars there - using lay-by as a toilet etc - and dumping rubbish there - Needs repainting or a proper sign saying PRIVATE PARKING ONLY. Only two houses here and getting in and out is pretty much impossible with lorries and cars parked in the way.

  • The problem is not fixed - all I get is excuses for not doing something about the lay-by and the people using it as a 'pee stop' - it needs sorting asap as its not healthy.

  • THE PROBLEM HAS NOT BEEN FIXED DESPITE PROMISES TO HAVE IT SORTED IN TWO WEEKS FROM LAST TIME. I HAVE DAMAGED MY CAR TWICE COMING ONTO THE LAYBY AND I SHALL BE SENDING THE BILLS TO THE COUNCIL. DISGRACEFUL THE STATE OF THE LAYBY, THE LACK OF SIGN ON IT AND THE STATE OF LEICESTER ROAD IS DISGUSTING.

  • A man came out and looked and left markings on the layby to resurface it. Two days later a man came and filled in three of the holes - and said it was marked for re-surface but he didnt have enough tarmac to do that. So NOT FIXED still and getting a bit fed up now reported in Feb. The road also has big holes in it which are almost as bad as speed bumps when you go down them - this needs sorting as soon as possible. DISGUSTED with the service I get for my taxes.

  • The council filled in a couple of holes in the lay-by - but now around them has collapsed. I have been notified will be sorted 21/22 July 2015 - frankly I dont expect that to happen as so far nothing has been done correctly.

  • This is getting worse and worse - the council have said it will be fixed 21/22 July - yes well I will believe that when I see it. Holes are getting bigger and more and more vehicles using lay-by as a toilet. New lay-by down the road now lets make this one private please.
