Opposite Trading Post car park. Overgrown prickly bush. This was previously reported in March by myself on 967437 report number. Now covering pathway. Completely ridiculous now. I have seen others have reported same issue. When will something be done? The reply to my report was that is had been handed to Shelia Gilder.

  • We were in the process of carrying out enforcement on the householders concerned however as this process was becoming quite lengthy with the number of properties involved and dissagreements over ownership we have had to take matters in hand and the works were completed on a without prejudice basis around one week ago.
