Wall falling down into my driveway

Reported in the General (Bridge & Struc.) category anonymously at 11:46, Friday 10 July 2020

Sent to Island Roads 1 hour, 3 minutes later. Enquiry ref: 16176504.

I bought 1 Nelson Drive in Cowes last October and the trees and earth separating the Nelson estate and Arctic road have mean the wall on my driveway is leaning and needs repairing. I have a structural engineers report at a cost of £500 to identify remedies for this structural defect. My solicitor has sent a copy of this report to the highways department and the developer. Neighbours say this damage has occurred in the last 2-3 years. I have a sheet from my solicitor to show I own a small portion of the wall but this is not where the wall is leaning. The end garage owner has also been in touch with me to say there are problems with the wall further up.
