Building work severely damaging public pathway
Reported via desktop in the Park safety issue category anonymously at 12:46, Monday 21 June 2021
Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2807477.
Building work to an extension at the rear of a property on Clarence Place has and continues to severely damage the pathway on what is known at the "Green Mile" or Station Road Linear Park.
Metal fencing intrudes onto the pathway from the boundary of the property, a large length of hedgerow in the park has been completely destroyed, presumably for access, and large quantities of gravel and brick have spilled onto the mud path from the works, and over time have been distributed for long stretches in either direction.
This pathway is important to the neighbourhood for dog walkers and those avoiding what can be the busier route along Locksbrook Road. While sympathetic to the stresses of building work I'd encourage the council to investigate and ensure this damage is made good before the close of the works.
We've looked into this report and are investigating the issue. We will update this report once we decide what action to take.

Thanks for flagging this up. The Council is aware of the situation and is now in a licence agreement with the resident responsible for this work. The licensee has a legal responsibility to reinstate the area on completion of the works – which is scheduled for mid-July and the trees within the affected area will be re-planted in the winter.
The report is now closed, further comments may not be monitored.
