Neglected verges and trees

Reported via desktop in the Street Cleansing category anonymously at 12:12, Monday 7 June 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The verges on Copers Cope Road from the junction with Southend Road on both sides and along the whole of Copers Cope Road have been left to become an eyesore. The grass has gone to seed and in urgent need of attention. The verges are constantly neglected and are now a mixture of seeded grass and bald patches where not even weeds thrive due to lack of leaf clearing last Autumn. The trees also need to be inspected. Many have huge suckers which are bad for the trees and in parts making walking along the pavements problematic because of the overhang.

  • Verges have been cut (hacked) with cuttings left scattered as ever all over the pavements. Have seen no action taken on tree maintenance. I am 5ft 2' and have to duck in order to walk on the pavement near me. It is quite obvious to anyone who walks along the road that no action has been taken.
