Wildflower verge has been vandalised/destroyed by contractors

Reported via desktop anonymously at 14:03, Sat 4 March 2023

Sent to Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council and Leicestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4281903.

The wildflower turf put in on the junction of Leicester road and New Buildings has been vandalised/destroyed. Looks like it was done by contractors, seeing where the new tarmac goes, leading to a new utility box.

  • Council have said that it has been "reseeded". However I can see no evidence of this. There is just bare mud in the area the contractors removed the wild flower turf.

  • Evidence of seeds now seen, however looks like normal grass seed rather than wildflower turf that should be there. The contractors have definitely not replaced the wildflower turf that they destroyed.
