Pavement maintenance is one of the biggest concerns of people on the doorsteps, say local Greens. Responding to residents concerns that maintenance is being cut, local Green campaigner, Kirsten Robb, submitted a request for more information. In addition, street charity, Living Streets (1), highlighted that during the cold spell last year there were around 20,000 hospital admissions as a result of falls on snow and ice. Many older and disabled people were too frightened to venture out at all.  
Residents can report poorly maintained footpaths to 08457 406080 from 8am-6pm and outside normal hours phone 0800 24 20 24.
