  • This is dangerous, the steps are used by visitors to Bath, dog walkers,students and residents throughout the day and at night . The street lighting is minimal and often non existent. The piles of rotten and recent leaves are a real hazard as they are difficult to see and very slippery in the wet weather. I suggest this busy area of Bath should be maintained by the council regularly 3-4 times a year, before a serious accident occurs. I await action please

  • Dear City of Bath as a resident of 6B Somerset place I am extraordinary shocked by the ignorance of not cleaning the stairs properly as the leaves in combination with rain are lethal. It won't take long before someone will sue you because of a major injury. That of course we want to avoid. I appreciate you have many jobs to do however this must take precedent now, please. Thank you for your co-opreration and understanding . best regards Egmond Brenninkmeijer
