Sinkhole in lane and dividing wall

Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 10:09, Fri 18 December 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 2437558.

I have reported a Sinkhole outside my mother's house and the lane next to the property. This was investigated by the Coal authority and fencing (house side) and board (lane side) was put up to keep everyone safe. After investigation The Coal Board has reported that issue was not due to past mining activities. I am a bit concern that when the Coal Authority remove the safety fencing, it could be dangerous to the public from the lane side.
