PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A Cornwall man has shared his concerns over a crumbling school wall which he fears could cause the trees sitting on top to come crashing down onto his property. Chris, who lives opposite Poltair School in St Austell, said he has been raising the issue over the safety of the boundary wall with the school and Cornwall Council’s contractor, Cormac, for around two years. He explained that loose bricks have started to fall onto the pavement and the entire embankment has shifted towards the road. Whilst a number of repairs have been carried out over the years, Chris said it still poses a threat to his property. “The whole situation has been making me feel very anxious and concerned, especially when there’s bad weather”, he told CornwallLive. “The area becomes a bit of a wind tunnel and I’m worried that the wall will buckle under the pressure and bring the trees down with it.

My house is in the unfortunate position where it directly faces the wall and is slightly closer to it than the other houses along the road.

.” He continued: “I’ve lived here for six years and over that time the trees have gotten bigger and the wall has gotten weaker. If one had to fall and damage my property, where would me and my family go? We’re in the middle of a housing crisis so it would be difficult for us to find somewhere and we’d probably end up in a hotel.” Loose bricks have started to fall onto the pavement (Image: Submitted) Cormac put a temporary cordon in place along the public footway on Sunday (November 20) but Chris said he does not feel as though this is enough to keep walkers safe because people are still using the path despite the barriers. “It’s a busy road and even though the pavement closure has been put in place, people just move the barriers and carry on”, he said. “It’s either that or they walk along the road for that stretch rather than crossing to the other side, so it’s not very safe and if a tree falls it could kill someone.” A spokesperson for Cormac said: “We confirm that we have cordoned off the public footway pending confirmation from the School’s structural engineer that their wall is safe and is no risk to footway users.” CornwallLive contacted Poltair School for a comment but has not received a response.
