Resident feeding electrics to charge vehicle through water supply in pavement

Reported via desktop in the Pavement damage category anonymously at 17:32, Sun 17 January 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2483953.

A resident has fed an electric cable out of vault through the pavement to charge their car (silver Porsche). They leave a black/yellow plastic out permanently covering over the hole when they are not charging. This surely not allowed on a public pavement (let alone how rubbish it looks on a beautiful road like Great Pulteney Street) - it is also a trip hazard and they leave a cone out to ‘reserve’ their parking space

  • Looks like this was reported back in January, I also nearly tripped over this unsightly lump yesterday 26th June, some 6 months later ! looks like Porsche owner has fed his car charging cable from his under pavement cellar through a hole he has made in the obsolete coal delivery manhole, as the months go by and more residents decide to install their own ‘plastic lumps’ pedestrians will be forced to ‘hope-skip-and jump their way along this World Heritage street !
