Land taken from public footpath

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 15:03, Tuesday 26 January 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Building work in back garden of house in Goldney Avenue looks to have encroached onto public footpath. Goldney Steps footpath is already narrow; the excavations for a new building on private land have taken chunks out of the tarmaced path. Moreover the new building may extend beyond the privately owned property and onto the public footpath. Aco drain may also have been positioned to drain directly on to the public footpath, which will be dangerous in winter as it's a steep slope there.
