Pavement surface causing trip hazard on Edward Street

Reported via desktop in the Trip hazard/uneven surface category anonymously at 21:54, Tuesday 1 February 2022

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 416145.

A section of the pavement along Edward Street is unkept and not safely maintained. There are leaves, mud and decomposed vegetation covering the paved surface as shown in the attached photos. This creates a difficult walking surface for pedestrians, particularly those who are less able to walk or elderly from the nearby care home. The pavement narrows at this part due to a hedge overgrowing into the path of potential pedestrians. The rest of the pavement is swept clear and in a good condition. Why is this stretch not maintained to the same standard? The hedge needs trimming to give the pavement full width and the debris needs clearing thoroughly to ensure a safe walking surface. Could the council action, or inform the property owner, please?

  • Slip and trip hazards still present on Edward Street (photos attached). This problem has not been resolved and the hazard remains. Even worse given the consistent rain in the last week. Dangerous pavement surface and encroaching bush. Action required please.
