Sunken pavement

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 11:35, Fri 3 November 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5170196.

The pavement outside the driveway at no 27 has dipped, causing our car to hit the bumper on the way in to the driveway. It's caused extensive damage to 2 of the cars.

A South bucks advisor previously suggested we park on the roadside and not use the driveway, however we have young children. I do not want to park on the roadside where it may be unsafe for them to get in to and out of the car. I also do not want to park on the road side as it may cause an obstruction to those leaving Copthall Corner as it would block their view of approaching vehicles.

My children and others have tripped up entering the driveway, including package delivery drivers and our post man.

The issue has been apparent since the summer
