Flint Street Pavements
Reported via desktop in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 20:38, Monday 12 February 2024
Sent to Haddenham Parish Council 16 hours, 25 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5568607.
House overgrown and pavement not useable for prams or pedestrians. There is also lots of plants and trees on the other side of the lane (like number 5) which narrow the pavement so we all have to walk in the road with young children. School mums have had enough, and probably many other villagers.
The report has been passed to the Highway Officer, who will carry out an inspection of the issue within 10 working days, emergency defects will be corrected or made safe at the time of the inspection, if reasonably practicable to do so. In this context, making safe may constitute displaying warning notices, coning‐off or fencing‐off to protect the public from the defect or other suitable action. If the inspection team cannot make safe the defect at the time of inspection, then they will instigate the relevant emergency call procedures to ensure appropriate resources are mobilised to make the defect safe.
There may also be occasions when the issue reported will not be repaired as it has been classified as a minor defect and does not pose any risk to either the safety or the integrity of the highway, these are called minimum recording levels as specified in our Highways Safety Inspection Policy.

These are pavements owned by the local council / governing body. The owners of the properties do not own the pavement and its confirmed in their Land Registry documents. It is a public road, so the same as the whole of the UK, unless it is a private road then it is the responsibility of the local authority. A simple google search will confirm this. They are a public footpath and therefore owned by the council and should be maintained and kept clear by the council. For mothers to walk with prams and people to walk safely, these need to be cleared. Can you please ensure this is looked into further as a matter of urgency? Thanks
