Overgrown vegetation covering pavement

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown vegetation in Council parks and green spaces category anonymously at 15:19, Monday 25 October 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 20 hours, 55 minutes later. Council ref: 3083646.

I have reported this problem 3 times already: on 3-7-21, 14-8-21 and 12-10-21. I am fed up by the lack of activity. Unless action is taken and the grass, brambles, nettles and thistles are cut back I will be asking both my councillor and the councillor for Lansdown to investigate why this problem has not been addressed. I regularly walk this route back from volunteering at the Mass Vaccination Centre at the Racecourse. Last week I heard 2 people saying that they had planned to walk from the Park and Ride but felt they couldn’t use the path as it was so overgrown. They were then late for their appointments at the vaccination centre.
