Overgrown grass and weeds in all parks and grass verges on footpaths

Reported via mobile in the Grass needs cutting category anonymously at 09:53, Monday 29 May 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4606374.


All the grass verges on Petts Wood West pavements, as well as the Southborough Lane park and Jubilee park are so overgrown it makes walking or children playing football, cricket etc. virtually impossible. The grass needs cutting as soon as possible please. It’s an annoyance for me but at least I am fortunate in that we have a garden so my children can play there but I do think it’s unfair on those children who have no outside space to play and therefore rely on our parks for their exercise and playtime. A balance needs to be struck between encouraging nature and wildlife with the meadow type areas and quality of life for many who want to enjoy and play in these outdoor spaces. Also predominantly it is just very long grass we are talking about here and not wild flowers. Many thanks for your attention on this matter. Kind regards
