Mud and debris on road and pavement due to tractors from local farm

Reported via mobile in the Spillages / Debris category anonymously at 11:20, Tuesday 3 January 2023

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

I visit my family in stocken Hall Road regularly, it used to be a pleasant area but over the last year has become unsightly and dangerous to walk on.i visited over Christmas and went for an afternoon "walk "from the housing area down towards Stretton. I found accessing the area impossible due to clumps of mud on the pavement obviously from tractor wheels and car tyre ruts As I am disabled it became difficult and dangerous to even try to walk and I had to return to the house. I believe this road is Council responsibility, the lower unaffected end of the road towards the prison being their responsibility. Unfortunately if anyone had slipped on the muddy area it would have caused them serious damage and would no doubt result in a compensation claim to the council which would be in noones interest. The grass verges all the way up to the farm have very deep tractor/lorry ruts which would result in cars getting stuck should they hit one and also the hedgerows have been "hacked",not professionally cut back and the cut branches and twigs left on the road and pavements looking unsightly for a beautiful county such as Rutland

  • To date this road is still as reported, more so in fact due to the recent heavy rain.the drains on the road are filled with mud and so water cannot drain from the road and the ditches on either side are filled with dead wood and shrubbery and so soak away is not possible. Thankyou for your attention, disappointed that this still has not been dealt with, please keep me updated. Thankyou Mrs Ruth Pedder
