Dear Sir

BDCA 2012 - 002 footpath problem Berowra Waters Road

We would congratulate council for the services and facilities that exist and are cared for in our area and trust that these continue for the benefit of the shire residents.

However we have been alerted by residents to several safety issues in our area that are Workplace Health and Safety concern for us as residents using your facilities.

We believe that it is your duty of care towards the community that such issues should be repaired as necessary.

We feel that it is our duty to report these to you as responsible residents and ratepayers.

We believe that the following issue may be Council's responsibility to police or have in-house staff repair or maintain:

BDCA 2012 - 002 footpath Berowra Waters Road - west side, Crowley to Hillcrest roads

The fill has been eroded on either side of the footpath and the gap from the concrete to the remaining fill is at places 100mm deep. The fill has been washed away over time and little or no maintenance been carried out despite grinding of uneven joints to make it safer and easier for walkers.

We are at your service to meet with a council representative to highlight our concern on site if you would contact me with details of when your representative would be available.

We would welcome your comment and perhaps a planned date when this would be rectified.

Yours faithfully
Berowra and District Community Association Inc.
