Drop at bottom of driveway causing cars to scrape on the road

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category anonymously at 12:44, Saturday 1 August 2020

Sent to Hertfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Significant subsidence and damage to road-edge of the drop curb causing any cars driving in/out of the driveway to scrape against the tarmac quite badly. Council emailed a number of times requesting repair that has been refused or ignored. I apparently do not have permission repair myself either.
