Fallen leaves turned to slush, mud on kerbside along Douglas Drive

Sent to Hertfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Leaves collect and are never cleared - road sweeper never comes down the road. The leaves rot, and turn to mucky black sludge. PLEASE COULD THE MECHANICAL SWEEPER CLEAN THE ROAD REGULARLY - WOULD NEED TO BE MID MORNING WEEK DAYS WHEN ROAD IS CLEAR OF PARKED CARS. I always have to report/beg EVERY YEAR for the road to be swept as it is NEVER done. The third photo is AFTER I have had to sweep the road myself as it is where I park my car and I'm fed up with stepping out onto the sludge every day. Also, where the leaves are not swept, it blocks the drain, so making it blocked and smelly.

  • This hasn't been resolved at all - no sweeper has been near or by - still having to step into mud/slush/slime everytime I get out of my car

  • Problem still exists. No Road sweeper ever comes down Douglas Drive - still slushy wet puddles.
