Directly OUTSIDE OUR RESIDENCE,8 WROXTON TERRACE,there is extensive cracking and elevation of the pavement and kerbing. This has resulted in one elderly woman 'face planting' onto the pavement and one other street resident, having several near miss falls. She has poor eyesight, so has an increased risk. Small children use this damaged pavement as skate board and scooter entertainment, challenging one another to travel at high speeds over the raised and cracked pavement and kerb, which is particularly badly damaged. This has also resulted in some injuries. Poor lighting in the street, increases the risk of damage and disability, as when it is dark, this damage to the surface, is easy to miss. Drainage of any surface rainwater is also impaired, creating mould and a slippery surface. This pavement ad kerb Cracking is resulting in vegetation growth through the cracks, also adding to an insecure surface, when wet and presents an unsightly appearance. Considering the high council rates in this area, we do not think that it is unreasonable to ask, that you will remediate these problems and in doing so, negate the potential for any further injuries or potential disabilities.
