The kerb/pathway that runs adjacent to the fence on the perimeter of Baywood House (2 Weathercock Lane)

Reported via desktop in the Kerbs category anonymously at 18:01, Thursday 30 May 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 407492.

We don't appear to have a kerb on the 'pathway' directly outside our property this causes us some significant issues:

1) when we experience rain, a significant amount of the road muck and debris ends up being flicked up onto our fence, which creates an eyesore but also increased wear - none of it is picked up by the road-sweeper either because 2) a lot of the muck and debris then runs off the 'path' and into the road blocking the grates in the drain directly opposite our driveway; we have had to clear the grates twice since we moved back into the property a month ago 3) as there is no definition between the path and the road, we get people parking outside our house all the time and they end up parking up on the path and with a 3 month old and a pram I often find myself having to walk in the road to walk around the car or to cross the road 4) we get a significant amount of people parking outside our property which creates a visibility issue and a significant hazard as you are unable to see oncoming traffic when exiting the driveway - we have nearly had a few collisions - can we please request that double yellow lines are added to avoid this risk moving forward please, particularly as we now have a young baby passenger

Thanks
