Directly outside 131 - on the drop kerb pathway

Reported via desktop in the Pavement and Cycle path category by Ryan Donaldson at 11:40, Wednesday 5 January 2022

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 365413.

There is a large hole that has gradually became worse over time. Not only is it a trip hazard, it fills with water and in this temperature, freezes, becoming a slip hazard. The deep hole fills with water which then subsequently contributes to flooding the drive of 131. My 3 year old daughter has tripped in this hole 3 times now, including today which has prompted this email. Its only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured by either falling over on the pavement, or worse falling into what is a busy road at school time. This hole outside 131 is on a a major foot fall route for the pre-school next door.
