Cracked pavements

Walking around Bath one is struck by the number of cracked paving and kerb stones.

Much of this damage is due to people parking on pavements. As residents we suffer:

• from the unsightly and dangerous condition of the pavements

• the cost of the local authority repairs

• the loss of utility services because extensive vaulting in Bath means many are buried very shallowly

We welcomed and are active participants in the police scheme to provide residents with warning notices to put on cars as driver education is key to addressing the problem.

However, enforcement is also vital if this problem is to be addresses properly.

We would like to see the remit of the parking enforcement officers extended so that they routinely handed out warnings and penalties to drivers committing this offence.
