The pavement for the entire cul de sac is uneven and dangerous for the elderly and wheelchair user.

Reported via mobile in the Pothole / Failed Reinstatement category anonymously at 14:57, Monday 1 July 2024

Sent to West Northamptonshire Council less than a minute later. ref: 6177372.

The pavement is in a dangerous state particularly for the elderly and wheelchair user. It is generally in a bad state but at the top of the cul de sac the refuse collection vans are partially responsible for the damage/dips due to the way they drive on the pavement. The turning point at the top of the cul de sac is too small for the heavy Veolia lorries and they mount the pavement. The council have told them to reverse into High View but frequently they don’t! I hope they and not the taxpayer pick up some of the tab for the damage they have caused!
