Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later
During the 1st and 2nd of August a B.T. contractor dug a trench between two telegraph poles to take a fibre optic cable. The route of the trench was through a grassed area and then the footpath outside my property. Following the back filling of the trench a considerable amount of debris, in the form of small to large stones and lumps of solid clay was left on the surface. Having changed my car on the 1st of August I expressed my concern to the contractor that the next time that the grass was mown the debris may be thrown through the picket boundary fence to possibly chip and dent the side of my car. I was told by the contractor that usually one or two days after the work finished a council representative would inspect the site and possibly, have the area covered in topsoil and reseeded. I reported this matter to the council on the 13/08/21 and was told that mowing of the area would be suspended but am not sure it has. Meanwhile on site nothing has changed and I have since tried several times to get answers as to what if anything is happening but so far without success. Will someone please take this matter in hand.
