Unstable and potentially dangerous section of the wall

Reported via desktop in the Retaining Wall category anonymously at 15:44, Friday 4 March 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

I would like to report an unstable and potentially dangerous section of the wall that runs along Goldney Avenue, Clifton. that is parallel to the properties at 8 and 9 Goldney Avenue, BS8 4RA. The stones at the top of the wall including the coping stones are loose and have started to fall off. I am concerned that they could fall onto anyone walking by the side of the wall or onto cars that are parked on the highway. I would be grateful if you could advise on the best course of action to help sort this out.

  • I too reported this over 12 months ago to a local councillor and an employee of the Council, with photographs. I don’t underestimate the task of making this safe, which will be an enormous cost to the Council, at a time when Councils are struggling to meet their commitments. In my humble opinion the whole wall eventually will need dismantling and ALL the vegetation (including the overgrown trees) will need removing before the wall is rebuilt. The roots of the trees and the ivy are causing the wall to collapse. The longer it is left the bigger the job will be.
