The dry stone wall along Weston Street has been damaged for a few years,with increased traffic flow due to new housing projects it is vital the horses are contained.The hole in the picture is opposite Watery Lane where the stables are located I have witnessed equines using this as an exit.Both landowner and stable owner deny resposibility. The stable owner believing it is caused by subsidence. Thank you.

  • I was told the problem had been dealt with,but it has not been fixed.I assume that means the person responsible for the wall has been informed?

  • This problem has not been sorted from the picture given I took on 6th August.I did have a message that this had been dealt with,I can only assume it was passed on to the landowner or the person that rents the field to assume responsibillity. It still remains a danger next to the highway/

  • It appears public or horse safety is not taken seriously in Weston Street on Portland.
