I am saddened and somewhat ashamed when residents point out the trip hazards on pavements and potholes in the roads because there is very little that I can do about it. I am a city councillor, and roads and pavements are a County Council responsibility.
One thing that can be done is that you can report this sort of problem at https://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/residents/travel-roads-and-parking/roads-and-pathways/roadworks-and-faults/
If you do this you can make sure that County know about the problem
I just had to let another Romsey resident know that their pavements will not be repaired. This time it was Catharine St that had captured my attention after a resident had drawn my attention to the state of their pavement.
I contacted the County Council as they are responsible for pavements (and roads). I was told the pavement budget had been spent up until 2021 and that even then it was unlikely that there would be money to spare except in the most extreme cases.
Given that Shire Hall takes takes £1190 from me as their share of my council tax, perhaps someone will tell me how much of it they spend in Cambridge?
