The state of this much used path is completely unsatisfactory and down right dangerous.

Reported via desktop in the Trip hazard/uneven surface category by Claire Ward at 09:57, Mon 25 October 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 407890.

This is the road outside the café – The Tea Cosy and puddles have been accumulating after rain for years and I have pointed this problem out many times, even talking to workmen who are working locally and nothing changes, nothing is done. Apart from being an eye-sore it is also slippy and in some cases dangerous when people walk out into the road whilst trying to avoid getting their feet wet. It rained this morning and 5 hours later there is still a large puddle there. Can the Parish please talk to the Highways people ( as I am sure there will be more clout in that than me trying again) and somehow establish that the state of this much used path is completely unsatisfactory and down right dangerous.

  • Thanks to Clare Ward for originally reporting this.

    This is an update showing the area in front of The Tea Cosy and further into the entrance of Stable Yard, part of the Green, with surface water flooding due to blocked drains on 31/10/21. The flooding was 9 cms deep from one side of the ‘road’ to the other. I reported this on Sunday ref: 1813191, only to find the case closed and no action is going to be taken. Apparently, “A full cleanse of the drainage system in the area took place on the 28/10/21”.

    The problem, I think, is the Stable Yard belongs to West Lindsey District Council (proof of purchase from Dixon and Hogg in the 1970’s held), but it has not been adopted by Highways as appeared to be the attention, hence it isn’t maintained, and Stable Yard isn’t even signposted to be able to explain the location of where the pot holes, and blocked drains are. It’s so frustrating, and evidently it’s not just the residents of Stable Yard who have been feeling ignored for so long now.

  • Just to reiterate it’s gone from bad to worse, these photos were taken on 03/07/2021. Stable Yard sadly, quite literally isn’t on the map, yet is owned by West Lindsey District Council.

  • In the transfer made between West Lindsey District Council and Dixon & Hogg it stated that WLDC were to build a road and footpath which was to become a Public Highway. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to have been adopted by Highways, as WLDC declared was the intention, and it has since been passed on without putting this in place. There are constant issues: 1. The Stable Yard hasn’t been signposted and is difficult to locate not being on maps for delivery drivers, emergency services, visitors etc. 2. It is part of The Green which isn’t sign posted or clear on maps either which compounds the problem of location for The Stable Yard residents. 3. Although it’s part of The Green and within the conservation area, the old, traditional street light within The Stable Yard isn’t included for maintenance with the others on The Green and is neglected, detracting from the conservation area. 4. The drainage issues above are an ongoing problem, 5, The state of the footway and pot holes in the “road” continue to be a problem and are dangerous for the residents and members of the public alike. To the best of my knowledge, this seems to be caused by WLDC’s failure to get the road and footway adopted by Highways as intended in 1979, so the ‘road’ and “footway” have been transferred to ACIS.

  • Update with apologies as West Lindsey District Council have clearly identified the road as being an adopted highway, maintainable at public expense.

    Would it be possible please to have confirmation from Lincolnshire County Council this report, from 25th October 2021, is still being investigated? Attached are some photographs of the area in December. Very much hoping this be resolved and the Public Highway signposted as “Stable Yard”, or “The Stable Yard” - this would greatly aid communication and help identify the location for any fixes needed in the future.
