Extensive weed growth on pavement in front of Sydney Place

Reported via desktop in the Excessive or dangerous littering category anonymously at 12:36, Monday 27 September 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 1 hour, 2 minutes later. Council ref: 3027365.

Vegetation is growing between most of the paving slabs and looks very unsightly, as well as being a slip hazard when it is wet. Some very elderly people live in Sydney Place and this will be particularly dangerous when it becomes icy later in the year if it is not dealt with promptly. I think apart from weed control the slabs need repointing to prevent such extensive weed growth on the pavement and along the kerbside.
