Pothole has come back once again
Open letter to Martin Tett, leader of Bucks County Council and Mrs Brooke Webb, service director – complaints SINCE November/December I have been trying to have potholes repaired in Ethorpe Close and Crescent. After two appeals you finally agreed to repair one, a particularly bad recurring one at the junction of the two roads, near the cinema car park.
This was repaired two or three weeks ago and the repair has become undone, the pothole is back.
This repair is costing time and money because it is not being managed properly. I have requested, on at least two occasions, to meet the inspector when they are examining but this has been ignored.
Once again, I would ask you to attend to this pothole. Once again, I would ask if I may meet with the inspector.
I would also draw your attention to my original email, on October 21, reporting this pothole and seven others in Ethorpe Close which need attention – thank you for attending to the double yellow lines
This confirms the points made in my open letter to Martin Tett, printed in the letters page of the Bucks Advertiser (February 5), and I urge you to take the points made seriously and hopefully you can introduce an improved strategy.

than a dozen cars, as residents prefer to park on yellow lines outside the Co-op by the Old Post Office and on the zebra crossing.
The situation by the reading room is even worse with the road frequently reduced to a single lane. More space on the High Street should be reserved for those with genuine mobility problems, giving the rest of us a little light exercise.

on-street parking is constantly abused. To illustrate, a van has been parked outside our shop for the last three days.
