We are now fencing off the full length of this wall and taking steps to reduce run off of water from the gardens that have been affected.”Curo does not own this wall we understand that responsibility for the structure lies with the owners of the Georgian townhouses along Burlington Street.”We had already contacted the owners of the properties where the initial collapse took place and are liaising with these residents, collectively discussing options with a structural engineer. We will carry out any further measures the engineer advises to keep the area safe.”We are now also writing to all the other owners whose gardens include a section of the wall to ask them to take urgent steps to ensure that their property does not pose a risk.”We are writing to all our customers at Ballance Street and Lampards Building to let them know what we are doing to keep residents safe.”The Bath Chronicle has launched a WhatsApp group to help you keep up to date with the latest news.
