Wooden railings rotting

Reported via desktop in the Other Highways issue category by Miranda Stanley at 13:57, Tue 24 October 2023

Sent to Shropshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 14125792.

Two railings are rotting at their base and they have NOT BEEN REPAIRED and have only had barriers and sandbags placed around them since the beginning of this year. This is the most photographed area of Bishop's Castle. The Museum at The House on Crutches as well as at the exit for weddings from the Town Hall. How long before repairs? Should the TOWN COUNCIL employ local artisan tradespeople to do the work and then bill Highways?
