Public footpath between 14&15 Five Acre Wood
Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 11:45, Mon 17 April 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4450001.
The footpath was tarmac originally and now is overgrown with weeds brambles etc. in the summer it becomes almost impossible to walk on. It needs to be stripped and re surfaced with tarmac. I have reported this before but no action so far. It has been like this for over 10 years. It also has a pile of logs left by the council in removing a tree which is blocking part of the footpath.
This has been passed to the local area technician to investigate the enquiry/issue regarding the footpath/pavement/cyclepath.
They will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days and if required arrange to resolve the issue.
