Can someone please tell me what I have to do to get the Cul-de-Sac in Fairdown Close swept. Apart from the debris from trees, we have a thick carpet of moss and an assortment of weeds sprouting from the disintegrating Tarmac which passes for a pavement. When I once asked that the moss be removed I was told that not enough people use the pavement to make it worthwhile ..The road has not been swept since May 2017. The rest of Fairdown Close has been cleared fairly recently but our section as usual was passed. over.

  • The road has been swept but the pavement remains covered in a thick layer of moss. There are weeds growing out around the lamp post, pushing through the disintegrating tarmac and sprouting between the cracks where the garden walls join the pavement. Since we have several Scots Pine Trees growing on a ransom strip by the side of the road it is again already deep in pine needles, twigs and leaves. The road needs sweeping every three weeks as I was assured would happen but instead there are four to five monthly intervals between each sweeping which means that for the most part , the Fairdown Close Cul-de-Sac looks scruffy and neglected and I for one am ashamed of it.
