Footpath in hazardous condition

Reported via desktop in the Footpath / pavement problem category by Calandra Meredith & Alex McCormack at 13:52, Friday 3 May 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5929727.

Footpath connecting Whitehill that accesses Broadlands Avenue odd numbers 1-33 and further access to end of street and steps to Kirtle has deteriorated to a point where it is dangerous creating trip hazards at multiple points. Retaining wall is cracked & also breaking up allowing weeds/shrubs/trees to grow & further damage it. The 2 brick and concrete access stairs have loose debris and steps where the brickwork has blown and the walls are bulging. This path is not just used by the houses directly adjacent but services the rest of the street, Freemans Court and Barnes residents.
