Planters on pavement

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 15:01, Wednesday 20 March 2024

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5743522.

Resident has many planters obstructing the width of the pavement (covers the whole width of his house, )this is obstructing pavement, not allowing residents with pushchairs etc to get past without being moved into the road. Can also be a tripping hazard and not securely fixed.

  • We regularly push our pushchair past this house on York Street, there is more than enough room on the pavement. The planters are narrow and are right up against the house; there is plenty of space to pass. They are beautifully kept all year round and bring much joy to us local residents.

  • This is an absolute lie sent by a disgruntled neighbour. The planters are no obstruction, they are in fact beautiful, well maintained and admired by all that visit York Street.

  • These planters have been here a long time and brighten the street, they are in no way blocking the pavement and definitely don’t force you into the road.

  • I live in York Street and have nothing but admiration for this house and its planters. I've never seen someone struggle with a pushchair. The planters are no wider than a wheelie bin, which get out out regularly and no one complains about that.

  • As a resident on this street I would like to say that this is untrue - there is well over a metre space between the planters and the road and plenty of clearance for pushchairs, wheelchairs etc. it as also not a trip hazard. If it was a problem in any of the ways mentioned, so would wheelie bins be on bin day. This feels more like someone has a petty vendetta and are wasting the councils time to make them feel better.
