New road sign is spelled incorrectly

Reported via desktop in the Sign problem category anonymously at 16:48, Wednesday 28 February 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5645599.

This road sign on Straight Bit (heading west, located just before The Common) is new - it was only installed recently. It needs to be corrected as the spelling is incorrect - it refers wrongly to "Flackwell Health" instead of "Flackwell Heath".
