Alley in a disgusting state with dangerous glass, bottles and debris around

Reported via mobile in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 13:33, Tue 30 November 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The alley running from Gorse Marsh Lane to Hendre road is in a terrible state. The alley is used by many walkers, cyclists etc as it is a shortcut taking you directly from between houses to just across the road from Gorse Marsh park. There is a great deal of rubbish, glass and debris embedded in the soil which is very dangerous. The lane to the side is private, but the public pathway, used by many, is not fit for use and could easily lead to serious injury especially for children. There are lots of bottles and cans dumped along the way also.

  • This has improved considerably over the past couple of years. The residents have steadily cleared their side and improved things there but the public footpath needs attention. Could this lane please be considered for a surfacing of gravel, at least at the further end (as per the photos)? Roughly one bulk bag of probably 25mm grade should do it: Raked out and tamped down along the main public footpath. Especially where it is squeezed between walls. This would solve the slimy sticky mud / slip hazard issue for the path's many users. (Third picture, left side - at its worst as the path disappears in the photo. Squeeze point at the further end towards Bower Court). Thank you.
