Collapsing wall and overhanging branches

Reported via desktop in the Dangerous road surface (including ice, mud, spillage or debris) category anonymously at 14:58, Wednesday 13 January 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2476047.

North side of High Street. Part of the wall has collapsed and the debris is still piled on the pavement. The wall immediately west of the junction with Harcourt Gardens is bulging out over the pavement and may collapse further in due course. Further west (opposite the Mazda Garage) there is still overhanging vegetation, forcing pedestrians to walk in the road where it is very narrow already.

  • Attended site, coping stones to top of wall have become displaced and loose by vegetation growth. All apparent loose stones have been removed. Enquiries being made of the Land Registry to establish ownership, once established owners will be requested to carry out necessary repairs.

  • The loose rubble has been cleared away, but no repairs have been done to the wall yet. Nothing seems to have been done to cut back the vegetation at all - it is still hanging well down over the front of the wall.

  • Land is not registered at the Land Registry. Situation is being monitored, as footpath on opposite side of road is accessible there is a safe alternative for persons in that area. Enquiries are continuing to establish ownership.

  • Noted. However, although there is indeed a footpath on the opposite side of the road, use of that path requires crossing over and then re-crossing back again what is quite a busy road. This adds additional risk for pedestrians with poor mobility.

  • The pavement is STILL blocked in several places by overgrowing vegetation, as the image show. I have to step into the road in at least 3 places whenever I walk along there and it is becoming increasingly dangerous with the rise in traffic levels. As the first image shows, the obstruction is ON the pavement, so surely it is a Highways Dept responsibility to clear it regardless of whoever owns the adjacent verge?
