  • No sign of any action being taken by Bexley Council regarding this sinkhole. There is a large void beneath the hole and I am very concerned that the heavy rain in the last few weeks could cause the road to sink further abd is a accident waiting to happen. What action is being taken?

  • Dear Bexley Council, Being a resident of the area this sinkhole is giving me sleepless night. I really feel that this negligence in attending the issue ASAP is putting life of the residents like me in danger. I would like to have your action plan on this ASAP otherwise we will need to esclate this issue. I really feel that in general the Poppy Close is a neglected area by the council as surrounding always stays filthy and these kind of incidences are not taken care of in time.
