Sent to Island Roads 26 minutes later.
Enquiry ref: 16232103.
The wall belonging to the building that was formerly 'Seaclose Stores' has been leaning into this footpath (N210) for months. It looks increasingly dangerous. The footpath has been formally closed by Island Roads on 2 occasions, but as this is a very well used footpath, adjacent to a bus stop, and there is no credible alternative route residents are still using it. The most recent closure was on 11 November "to enable Island Roads to carryout emergency repairs" . Nothing has happened. As this wall appears to be a danger to the public surely the owner of the property has a responsibility to repair it? Or if they are not responding, can't Island Roads deal with it? If someone gets hurt I know where the responsibility will lie. (NB the footpath was also closed on 28 Sept 2021, but no repairs were made)
