  • Very uneven surface, sunken road, 25th August
    There have been temporary road surface signs up at the end of the village in this area for at least six months. The rest of the road was recently resurfaced however for some reason the last two hundred metres were left. This road surface is now getting very uneven and appears to be collapsing. In one place, about half way along the temporary stretch, as you travel north to south the road surface suddenly lifts approx six inches and if hit at speed would cause issues. I dont understand how the whole length of the B3143 along the Piddle valley has been resurfaced recently and yet this last bit has been left for months and months in such a poor condition.

    This slip Road is terribly congested at all hours of the day. Due to traffic leaving Bournemouth it makes it very difficult to get onto this roundabout.

  • Grass areas in pavement, 23rd August
    Between numbers 2 and 26 Old Parish Lane there are 13 separate areas of grass set into the pavement. The grass is cut periodically by the council. The grass covers access to stop taps and water meters in some instances and its only use is as a dog toilet. If the grass was removed and the pavement resurfaced (badly needed anyway), including over the grassed areas it would not only clean the pavement up and give easier access to stop taps and water meters it would also save the council having to send someone to cut the grass.

  • Danerous Parking, 19th August
    I know others have raised this issue before but nothing has been done, still on a daily basis there is dangerous sitiations occuring becuase of people parking poorly at the co-op, many people just fling their cars either side of the road if there is no physical space, perhaps double yellow lines would help prevent this? Its particularly dangerous when you get two or three of the quarry lorries stopped there too. frequently others who do get a space just reverse out without looking into oncoming traffic (imnot sure what can be done on that one as I guess thats a driving standards issue).

  • Overgrown, footpath overlooking field, 19th August
    The path overlooking the field is getting rather overgrown, simply needs a spray to reduce all the nettles. Getting dangerous particularly right by a gate that says 'private no entry' near some residents car park as someone is too lazy to trim their hedges back and there are branches poking out at eye level, on the other side of the path is all of the nettles which impeding onto the pathway. My partially signted friend has told me how dangerous it is to have these two obstructions and that merely cutting back the nettles and vegetation by the coucil will help ten-fold

  • Man hole cover likely to cause a fall, 19th August
    On the pavement outside 4,High Street there is a manhole cover that rocks. There are elderly people walking along that side of the pavement to avoid the car wash and the manhole cover is a health and safety problem at the moment. I nearly fell on it while guiding my 87 year old mother away from it. It has been like that for a long time but I had always avoided it before and stupidly not thought to report it.
