I live alongside Brickfields. The grass has been left for 2 years to grow and encourage wildlife. It is so long and overgrown now that hayfever this year is worse than usual. We are also suffering with the smell of dog poo as owners do not pick it up fro. The overgrown grass. Also had a rat issue in our property. The hedge is so overgrown that it is growing through our fence and tilting the fence.

  • Trees from Linear Park have broken my fences, blocking light and branches hanging over very near to the house. Found a branch on my doorstep last week. If this continues, I or one of my three children may be injured. I would also appreciate repairs to the broken fences. Please contact me on 07872422751
