Mental health worker blasts Nottingham council after 6ft wall falls over at the back of her garden.

Mental health worker blasts Nottingham council after 6ft wall falls over at the back of her garden.

A mental health worker, Alison Cockbill, aged 41, has expressed frustration with her local council, Nottingham City Council, due to the delayed repair of her collapsed garden wall. The wall, measuring six meters in length and six feet in height, is owned by the council and has exhibited significant cracks since August 17. Despite her concerns, Nottingham City Homes, a council-run organization, initially deemed it not an out-of-hours emergency. Several hours later, the wall collapsed, exposing her garden to theft and vandalism.

Recurring Communication Issues

Alison Cockbill, a long-time resident of the property, has reported that she contacted the council daily since the wall’s collapse but received no response for nearly two weeks. A council worker inspected the wall the day after the collapse, but since then, Ms. Cockbill claims to have heard very little regarding repairs or resolution. The wall collapse caused damage to her garden decorations and plants, prompting her to take immediate action to secure the area with temporary fencing.

Unresolved Safety Concerns

Despite the wall being labeled as ‘unsafe,’ the council has informed Ms. Cockbill that repairs cannot be scheduled until December, leaving her vulnerable to unauthorized access and theft in the meantime. The delay in addressing the issue has also resulted in a pile of bricks remaining in her garden since August 31, when they were supposed to be removed by council workers. Ms. Cockbill expresses frustration and disappointment with the council’s handling of the situation, feeling let down by the lack of response and action.

Council’s Response and Ongoing Claim

Nottingham City Council has declined to comment on the matter, citing an ongoing claim made by Ms. Cockbill regarding the collapsed wall and the subsequent issues she has faced.
