Picket fencing falling down

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later
The picket fencing here is in terrible condition with several sections completely fallen down, paint flaking off etc... Is it the responsibilty of the council to repair this ? It really is an eyesore as it is.
Thank you for your report, this is now being investigated. Information on our services and the timeframes we aim to respond in can be found: http://www.bromley.gov.uk/ fixservices

Since my initial post on 5th May I've received no update from the council & the fence is still in terrible condition. Can you advise when repairs will commence ?

I initially reported the picket fence damage on 5th May. It is now 30th June & the fence hasn't been touched yet. Not one single attempt at repair. It remains an utter eyesore. Is there any specific reason why it hasn't been repaired yet ? Has Bromley run out of money ? Repairing the fence would be a better use of council funds than the pointless cycle lane system implemented at the junction of Aldersmead Road/Lennard Road - a job that undoubtedly cost tens & tens of thousands !!!

The identified repair is one that will be undertaken by our Property Maintenance Team. The necessary works order has been raised with them and entered into their ongoing works schedule, unfortunately we do not have details of timeframe of when these works will occur.

As per others - this work was entered into your contractor's work schedule in February when first reported. You control the funding to these contractors, therefore you should also control their works schedule. You'll be very disappointed when you have to remove travellers again from the site, because it is now open and easy to drive onto. Come on LBB do the right thing and fix the issue.

For clarity the works are on our Property Maintenance Team's schedule, which covers LBB owned assets across the entire borough. As such it is not possible for a timeframe on these works to be provided by our Property Team at this moment but the works remain on their schedule.
