The front gardens to our houses as shown in pics have to be left open plan as amenity space and the council cuts the grass. this has been agreed the whole time i have lived here (48yrs). it is a communal play area but is unusable right now as it hsn't been cut for months. it can't be seen in the pics but on site you would see someof the grass is just below our kitchen window. all the other grass in our area as been cut. at one time about 4 or 5 years ago your department decided not tpo cut the grass of the private houses, only teh council ones but it was so complicated and physically impossible for your guys to do so without straying onto private gardens and to determine where one lawn finished and another started that the powers that be decided to go back to the decades old arrangement of cutting it all. it was 4 times quicker and much more efficient. at the moment it is disgusting and will be now when its cut because it will be like a rough field with bundles and rolls of grass everywhere which will go brown and look an absolute disgrace. these are our private gardens but you took on the responsibility of cutting them and have not done it. please sort this out. thank you geoff phillips 97 mildmay road
