Calls to urgently fill pothole hazards in Humberston parking area
A HAZARDOUS parking area in Humberston must be resurfaced urgently – before somebody else falls and breaks their leg.
That is the demand from residents and councillors, who are angry that the potholed strip of land near shops on Fieldhouse Road has still not been repaired – two months after a petition was presented to the council.
Councillor Peter Wheatley, the portfolio holder for environment, told a full council meeting that the authority could not repair the road because it still did not know who owned the land.
The answer dismayed ward councillor John Fenty (Con, Humberston & New Waltham) who said that someone had broken their leg after falling on the uneven surface in September.

Chairman of Humberston Parish Council, Harry Hall said the parish council had passed information relating to the ownership of the land to NELC two months ago.
Dee Breckon, 72, who started a petition signed by more than 500 people, said: "It is 100 times worse than it was. It is absolutely appalling and is definitely a health and safety hazard."
The council's head of development, Jason Longhurst, that some of the landowners had been identified, and expressed hope the work would be done by the summer.
