Guttering plus weeds, brambles, nettles, buddleia overhanging public footpath.

Reported by Mrs M Chapman at 11:51, Saturday 31 August 2019

This has been a problem for years, one year my neighbour and I cleaned the guttering ourselves and found an assortment of treasures but we are no longer able to do so....nor feel it is our duty. I have been clipping bits off the overhanging branches, brambles and nettles and permanently carry my secateurs... otherwise the path would have been unwalkable. One mum pushing a pushchair stopped to thank me, she would have had to have taken her children onto the road otherwise. It looks dreadful and is a hazzard. The whole area is a mess of weeds and needs severe pruning/lopping/tidying. So....Gutter and pathway please.
