There are fears that a wall which is in a “very poor and dangerous condition” in front of a home in Enniskillen could collapse. 
Meresa Fee has has to contend with issues outside her home on the Coa road for several years, including a build up of floodwater when it rains. 
Ms. Fee feels she is getting nowhere with the relevant authorities and Fermanagh-south Tyrone MP Tom Elliott says he is frustrated at what he claims is a “lack of co-operation” from the agencies.
“When I moved here 11 years ago there was a hairline crack in the wall but it has gradually got worse over time and when it rains the water builds up, it was all flooded earlier in the week. If you look at the wall you will see that the pillar has sunk. I feel over the years that there has been a breakdown of communication somewhere within the different agencies when dealing with this,” said Ms. Fee.
Four years ago a culvert was installed on the road outside Ms. Fee’s home in order to alleviate the flooding problem but it has not. As a result the tar on the footpath alongside Ms. Fee’s wall has disintegrated and the wall is sinking. 
“You have needed your wellies on to come down this road in the past,” said Ms. Fee who has raised the issue with a number of agencies, including the newly formed Department for Infrastructure. 
“I thought it would be sorted out. This wall is going to have to be built again and when you look at the ground you know it needs fixed. The wall looks like it is falling, it could fall towards the house. It will not help if it falls. I’d like the wall to be built and the ground has to be sorted. The fall in the footpath should go towards the road, not the house, like it is at the moment,” she said. 
Mr. Elliott says he has been working on Ms. Fee’s case for some time. “The wall in front of her house is in poor condition and has a number of cracks in it. The footpath in front of the wall has subsided and is also in a very poor and dangerous condition. The various agencies have various aspects of responsibility in the area given that there is a small river that runs alongside the property. 
“Ms Fee is accepting that there is a responsibility on her regarding the wall, however she is adamant that there is also a responsibility on the agencies, given that the footpath is in such very poor condition outside the wall,” he said.
Mr. Elliott is attempting to find a resolution.

The Department for Infrastructure was contacted this week and responded late on Wednesday. A spokesperson said: "TransportNI has fully investigated the matter of a leaning wall at Underwood Park. The wall in question has been cracked and leaning for at least 10 years. Investigations found that the failure of the wall started before any service work was undertaken in the area. The main reasons for the structural failure of the wall are deemed to be inadequate foundations for the wall, which was originally built on ‘filled ground’. Furthermore, roots from a number of mature trees planted immediately behind the wall are also having an adverse affect on the wall’s stability.

“As the failure of the wall started before any service work was carried out in the area, TransportNI cannot reasonably be expected to contribute to the cost of remedial work for a problem they did not create. Transport NI however did make a goodwill gesture in that they would reinstate the section of footway adjacent to the wall if Mrs Fee was to rebuild the wall. This would save Mrs Fee a considerable amount of the rebuilding cost. This offer was not taken up.

 “The footpath past the property is not currently on any programme of work and is not a high priority for resurfacing as there are no actionable defects at this location.”
