LIGHT STUMP IS UGLY HAZ­ARD

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

MICHAEL HANLL Ben­netts Che­sham

I was pleased to read the ar­ti­cle about the com­plaint con­cern­ing the rem­nant street light stump in Eskdale Av­enue (Jan­uary 19, p10).

I have to ne­go­ti­ate this ugly haz­ard each day and quite a few months ago I wrote to the coun­cil about this haz­ard, en­clos­ing a photo. I warned about the pos­si­ble dan­ger to young moth­ers with bug­gies (es­pe­cially dou­ble bug­gies), to the el­derly and the blind. I have re­ceived no ac­knowl­edge­ment or re­ply nor seen ac­tion.

It would be a very quick and easy job to re­move this stump, and much cheaper for the coun­cil than the le­gal and com­pen­sa­tion fees for a pos­si­ble se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent caused by this dis­grace­ful, ugly haz­ard.
