"No.2 & no. 3 Chapel Cottages, Waters Lane" have a different postcode to all the residences actually on Waters Lane (Westbury on Trym). These 2 cottages are offset from Waters Lane via a 20 metre alley, between the plumber shop and the church at the bottom of Waters Lane. There is no sign on this alley to indicate where Chapel Cottages are. It means delivery drivers find it almost impossible to find. Even Royal Mail replacement posties have trouble... last week an NHS test kit for me was delivered to number 3 Waters Lane (different postcode) and my neighbour (2 Chapel Cottages) had her new passport delivered to 2 Waters Lane. You can see how serious this is! I reported incident to Royal Mail. This could all be relieved with one of your standard road signs fitted at the end if the alley. Maybe 2 signs, so it could be seen from both directions, up & down Waters Lane? Sign would read; "Chapel Cottages", or, "2 & 3 Chapel Cottages"? There are only two cottages here, could never be any new ones built nearby. My neighbour and I have lived here for decades and have put up with delayed/lost deliveries/post, but, the missing NHS test kit and passport last week are too serious to ignore this any longer. Would be grateful if you could send a council colleague to the address to survey the problem for the most appropriate solution. Many thanks. Mike
