Very slippy path when wet

Reported via mobile in the Park safety issue category anonymously at 10:41, Tuesday 20 February 2024

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 5603615.

On 4 occasions in the last 4 months, myself or the child I look after have slipped on this path when it is rainy. Twice, the child I looked after fell over. It is so so so slimy when it’s wet, and it’s just a matter of time before someone slips on it and hurts themselves

  • Generally, lichen is not being removed from paths and pavements in the area and this makes them slippery. Many of us are preferring to walk in the road on the worst bits. The upper parts of Northampton St and Harley St are badly affected.

  • Unfortunately, we have both slipped on this path this week. When it rains, this path is lethal and urgently needs sorting. It's just a matter of time before a serious fall occurs
