This area is the council’s responsibility and has been left untended for 12 months in the meantime the trees which the gardeners just trimmed has mushroomed up. This garden has not been replanted for years since it was devastated by team who decided to cut down all the shrubs and roses which were there. Half this plot still has the original planting but the left hand side is overgrown and sports self set trees which are overhanging the pavement. Please investigate the problem. Thank you.

Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the condition of the vegetation on this section of Drayton Road; specifically that you feel it is overgrown, overhanging and could be hazardous. We appreciate your concerns and can confirm that a works order has been raised to cut this back. This should be completed in the next six months; hopefully much sooner.
