Reported in the Japanese knotweed / ragwort category anonymously at 21:00, Thu 25 May 2017 using FixMyStreet Pro

Japanese knotweed is growing in this hedge and has now spread into the adjacent planting. Any hedge cutting usually done by a contractor may transfer the plant into the green waste (which is illegal) and spread it further as contractors may not be aware of the problem.

  • Nothing has happened. the hedge needs cutting and it will happen soon and if contractors are not notified the Japanese knotweed will go into green waste instead of being disposed off in a legal way (not in green waste)

  • Still nothing has happened. The hedge has not been cut, Japanese Knotweed has grown well over the summer. If cut, stem pieces are likely to end up in green waste and not properly disposed off.
