Overgrown vegetation/ brambles in front of 1-15 Heckmondwike Road. It has not been done completely for a good number of years. (4/5 years) Even though I've made several complainants over the years. It only ever gets a trim around the edges but it is still unsightly to see every day, hazardous (smashed glass bottles ect) and attracts Vermin!! Just trimming does not solve the problem as the brambles/weeds have become more overgrown as they have not been attended to. The council land across the road is attended to regularly throughout the year. Ours is not. Where is the equal funding?

Please could this work be completed. I have already tried to contact the housing office and local councillors, but have received no reply.

Kind regards Samantha Smith 07481 546474
