Continuing danger to pedestrians
Reported via desktop in the Railings, bollard, & post damage category anonymously at 20:55, Tuesday 24 January 2023
Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4167541.
I refer to previous report No: 4158295. You replied to say that this problem "has been fixed". I regret to say clearly no-one from your Authority has visited this site: the danger continues to exist. The attached photographs show that the owner/developer has merely stretched some tape where there had been metal railings: these have been removed leaving the very real possibility that someone, particularly a child. could easily trip, falling over into what can only be described as a building site, and injure themselves. Look closely and it can be seen that the end of the tape is merely placed under a rock. Your Council and the Owner/Developer would be liable for significant damages for injury. You have not "Fixed the problem" - this is a travesty and a continuing danger to the public.
Thank you for this report. We will review the details and carry out an inspection of the site if required.
