  • I reported this footpath over two weeks ago and it still has not been cleared. People will be injured and hurt by the brambles and nettles that invade thei path. Children are especially at risk!

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 21:05, Fri 28 August 2020

  • Still overgrown! I reported this on 17th August! How long does it take for the council to clear it? The nettles now cover half the footpath. It is also full of litter and dog poo! Utter disgrace and B&NES should be ashamed to leave it in such a state for so long - 8 weeks!

  • Still overgrown! Stinging nettles and brambles encroaching onto footpath by around 2ft from edge of path. Total disgrace! I first reported this back in August! What has the council done - nothing!

  • Still not cleared! First reported on the 31st July! How long does it take to clear a foot path back to edge. Still overgrown with nettles, other weeds and brambles. Litter everywhere too and dog poo. Disgusting for a well used footpath that leads to Norton Hill school! Come B&NES why haven’t you done anything about this?
