Potentially dangerous trip-hazard pavements and large potholes have been repaired following reports by Councillor Peter Diplock. The County Council have responsibility for the quality of pavements and roads, and it can often be an uphill task getting them to make the necessary repairs, particularly to pavements.
Peter said “I’ve spoken with several residents recently who’ve had nasty falls due to uneven pavements. As well as the awful physical effects, a fall also really shakes people's confidence. These trip hazards result in more pressure on the DGH and more need for follow-up care, all of which could be avoided with a little more investment and pro-active management from County. I’ll continue pressing them to do more to maintain our streets.”
