People helping themselves to the green areas of common land around the estate. A perfect example is [edited for privacy - details sent to council]. The back garden fence was taken down and a new one erected, thus taking some of the grass verge. As the garden was on a different level the bottom of the fence has had to be built up to retain the soil I expect. The adjacent neighbour in Coquet Drive now has their gate next to this. There is landscaping going on at the moment and the new turf has already been laid.
If this practice is not stopped then everbody will be doing it and the estate will lose the open feel for good. I supply my name on the understanding that it is not given or told to the people involved in this incident.
