When Our Green District Is Just TOO Green
We’ve had quite a few complaints about grass and greenery in the last week.
- Downhall Park Way ditch – a rectification notice was being sent to the contractors, ISS, on Friday to finish the work. They will have 2 working days to complete it.
- A129 in Rawreth, to the west of the Carpenters Arms Roundabout -apparently the verges only get a ‘rural cut’ once per year, though that clearly isn’t adequate and we are querying this. We have asked for the vegetation overgrowing onto the footpath to be removed (that’s a County Highways responsibility). We have also asked for rubbish and a tyre on the grass verge to be removed by the District council and hopefully that will be done soon.
- Downhall Road area – We have received several complaints from local residents that although the grass verges in the downhall area were mowed last week , this was not followed up by the usual strimming operation to the edges and around trees, leaving the area looking “very scruffy” We have queried this with the district council.
