The fruit and vegetable shop on the corner of Hampton Park and Cotham Hill have So much produce on the pavement and road edge that it is causing an obstruction especially if pedestrians need to walk through when customers are outside choosing produce it is impossible. They leave just a small space between the produce so pedestrians are not able to walk through and have to negotiate traffic on the road.

  • Over the last year the aforementioned fruit and veg shop have taken over increasing amount of the pavement and now spill onto the kerb side of the road where there are double yellow lines . As the shop is so small customers are either blocking the pavement waiting to pay or choosing ing produce from their display on the pavement .The gap on the pavement between the stands is now only about 3 feet wide making it impossible to socially distance when pedestrians are passing through and hard for buggies and wheel chairs to pass through safely and frequently pedestrians have to walk into the road . I do not understand why this shop has been allowed to take over more and more of the pavement and it clearly represents and real H&S hazard .
