  • Hello, we had HERA meeting yesterday (neighbourhood resident association) and it seems that this problems has not been fixed yet, since October 2019. As you can imagine, with spring-time arriving, branches are extending to the effect of increasing the risks of affecting the BT lines for a number of residents. This is not ideal in general, but it would require urgent action now, also in the context of emergency contingency plans due to corona-virus. It has been checked: the land is owned by BANES, and Sustrans is not involved. Please act now. Thanks
