Residents recently contacted me about the crumbling wall at the side of the Oliver Twist pub on the corner of Oliver Road and Church Road. The pub has been derelict for some years awaiting planning permission to develop it into flats. The wall and fence at the side by the beer garden has started to crumble (see picture) and looked in danger of collapsing. I contacted the Council, who investigated. In their opinion they agree that it is crumbling, but was not unsafe. They will continue to monitor the situation and in the meantime have written to the owners.
