  • As far as I am aware the vegetation has still not been cut back from this sign and it is well passed your 28 day timeframe?

  • Despite saying that you would cut back these branches, etc., within 28 days, they are still covering the sign over 100 days later!!!! So much so that the sign is hardly visible and not working properly to slow vehicles as they approach our village playing field.
