Many parts of Highan F look over ground and unkept

The tree that I have highlighted on the map needs to be trimmed back as it is over hanging the pathway, but it is not alone. Most of the trees in the area of Higham where I live need to be cut back. The state of the grass verges and open areas is a disgrace. I have to maintain the hedge and the grass verge near my house in order that this area looks a nice place to live. We, as others in this area pay a lot of council tax every year and I don't think that we get a good deal. These are the views of a number of residents in my area. Please get these points assessed ASAP so that job sheets can be raised. Looking forward to living in an area that looks well cared for.

  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention.

We appreciate your concerns and can confirm that the vegetation in this area are programmed to be cut, in the near future, under our maintenance programme.
