Obstructed Pavement

Reported via iOS in the Railings, bollard, & post damage category anonymously at 14:21, Saturday 12 September 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2291224.

Widcombe high street has a very wide pavement. However the large number of A-Boards + Tables & Chairs has significantly reduced the width. Outside nos 16-20 the pavement today (Saturday) is reduced to less than the width of a wheelchair, and pedestrians are stepping into the highway just to walk along because of so many obstructions on the pavement.
