Wall crambling at the back of 28 Audley Grove, BA1 3BT

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction on road or pavement category anonymously at 10:19, Tuesday 30 January 2024

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 5509332.

Hello, I tried to report this on your website but the link to reporting an issue with walls only refered back to an emergency report. I live in Audley Grove and at the back of our properties (from Audley Grove No 22 to 30) is an old wall from the old estate. Our land run up to the wall but I understand that the council is responsible for maintaining this was based on the deeds and previous work performed on it.

Over the years there has been a lot of concern for how the wall leans, but we have been assured this was safe with some additional top stones reapplied a couple of years ago. In the area where I live at No.28 Audley Grove, the condition of the wall has started to deteriorate quite dramatically on the side facing my property. Over the last weeks we have had stones split and fall to the ground and much of the cement between bricks is rapidly flaking away and falling to the ground. As the wall leans towards the driveway on our properties, this has caused some cosmetic damage to my vehicle as a result. Due to the position of the garages on our properties and the need to allow access to my neighbours this means that we all have to park our vehicles alongside the wall.

There are other patches where the stone work is in similar condition, however it appears worst in the area of my property. Can you please pass this on to the relevant department as I would like to understand what can be done to fix the wall and stop it deteriorating or causing further damage. In addition if it is left unfixed with the wall leaning and the weather being exposed damaging the cement, there could be further risk to the wall’s integrity.
