This problem has been present for at least a year but is progressively worsening. The location is on Kingsdown Parade, opposite to the junction with Montague Hill. Pothole in pavement by entrance to Saville Mews, several smashed paving stones, some depressed enough for a deepish puddle to have formed, others sticking up presenting trip hazard. In the adjacent part of the pavement where it is crossed by the vehicle entrance to Saville Mews, another paving stone has lifted up and presents another trip hazard.

    You sent me a message saying this had been "Fixed. Case closed. NFA required." But NOTHING has been done to repair the pavement. The paving stones are by the entrance to 49-51a Kingsdown Parade (indicated by Arrow 1 in today's location photo). They are still broken, tilted and unstable. In wet weather a puddle develops in the depression, hiding the dangerous condition of the pavement underneath. There are also two other loose raised paving stones indicated by Arrows 2 & 3. These are historic pennant stones in a Conservation Area and should be rebedded NOT replaced with tarmac. All three defects are a trip hazard. This is the third time that I have had to contact you about the same pavement defects. Please will you arrange a proper repair before a pedestrian sustains an injury?
