Grass Verge

Reported anonymously at 09:46, Friday 17 January 2020 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and Vale of White Horse District Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 1944089.

We have grass verges outside of our house. The bus drivers keep driving on them despite blocks being put on the grass to prevent this kind of driving (we have sent a complaint to the bus company). The neighbours opposite us have put concrete/tarmac down instead of grass so that when drivers go onto the pavement it doesn't cause obstructions and damage to the part where pedestrians walk. Would it be possible for the council to come and tarmac our grass so that it is a safer pavement for us and our neighbours?

  • Thank you for your enquiry. In answer to your request "Would it be possible for the council to come and tarmac our grass?" We have assessed it, but due to budgetary constraints and the fact that the damage you report, on the verge, unfortunately, does not currently meet the criteria for intervention, we will not be fixing at this time. We will continue to monitor this during our routine inspections. This report has been closed.
