A pothole in road problem

Reported via Open311 in the A pothole in road category by Gloucestershire County Council at 12:36, Tuesday 5 March 2024

FixMyStreet ref: 5671228.

email rcvd 25.02.24 - There’s several fairly large potholes on the Houndscroft Lane leading from Bear Hill to Lower Littleworth.
The worst ones are between Western Cottage and Collin Cottage. The lane is very narrow and there’s potholes each side of the lane so it’s impossible to avoid them.

Could you please send a contractor to rectify the situation.
