117-119 Clophill Road, Maulden, MK45 2AE

This email is regarding the sandstone retaining wall that is situated to the East of Maulden, Bedfordshire, MK45 2AE on Clophill Road, which separates the private residences and public highway (see attachment). As a resident at 117 Clophill Road Maulden, I am growing increasingly concerned about the retaining wall which boarders our property and out next-door neighbours, number 119. The wall is showing clear signs of degradation, cracking, and partial collapse due to the improper maintenance from the Bedfordshire Council. I would now go as far to safe that it is of a risk to the public. The retaining wall was built in 1934/35, where the sandstone was quarried and hauled from Sandy and installed by the Bedfordshire council for the formation of what was then, the A507. Over the years the wall has not been maintained by the council and has overgrown as well as being subject to high levels of infiltration thus the disrepair of the structure. It is also stated that the wall is of a grade/ protected as it is linked to the number 119 (Grade 2 listed property). This wall is of outstanding beauty and is an asset to the community, it would be brilliant to see the conservation of the wall, but most importantly making it safe for the public.
