There is a thorn blackberry bush outside the front number 20 Newport Pagnell road, on the street. This is blocking access to the water stop cock for the house, which access is needed for to prevent flooding. This needs to be cut back asap for this reason. The bush is also spilling over into the property.

  • Serious problem to access the water stopcock due to thick thorn bush and build up of soil and overgrown landscape on the streetscape. The council will need to remove any traces of bushes here to prevent now and future issue to access the stopcock to property 20 Newport Pagnell Road. Anglian water informed the home owner that they need access to stopcock at all times.
