Alarming crack in pavement due to subsidence?

I have noticed an increasingly large crack in the uneven pavement outside my granddad's house. The pavement is on a slight downhill slant and in places not stable to walk on for the elderly. The crack has appeared roughly toward the end of last summer 2018; the houses at Four Acres sit atop a (subsiding?) slope which looks like it is bulging at bottom (in line with number 154 and 156) due to excess soil, and is causing possible damage to water mains (constant repair by water company needed due to leaks, which are still not fixed). I am concerned the crack will increase in size due to further rain and frost and therefore cause land to slide even further. Something seems to affect water pipes. Please fill cracks and sort out subsidence and straighten footpath before this gets any worse.
