This area was originally part of the Factored Estate and the grass was cut and maintained by the Scottish Greenbelt Company. Unfortunately they went into receivership and the land was sold to a developer. Since the sale the developer has not maintained the land and has not cut the grass for a number of years. It is getting worse every year. This year is particularly bad as the grass is extremely long and the rubbish that has collected in the area has attracted rats. The grass needs to be cut back as a matter of urgency to discourage the rats that are present. Is it possible for Fife Council to force the land owner to maintain this ground or can the Council cut the grass as part of their maintenance programme? They already cut the shrubs and trees on the opposite side of the road.
