Blocked pavement drains & tempory fix for the massive weed issue

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain: Blockage inside drain category anonymously at 22:20, Wed 6 September 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 2 months, 3 weeks, 5 days, 14 hours, 31 minutes later. Council ref: 4967013.

The weeds eventually have now been temporally cleared on both sides of the street. I hope you realise that these weeds will lift pavements & road surfaces if not treated. Waste of time strimming them as the situation will be back in a few weeks. The pavement drains also are still blocked on the left hand side going up Herbert Road. It's not cost effective to cull the massive issue doing it the way you are. The environment is a big issue I know for using chemicals but 1 big hit & then ongoing more natural products could be used by 1 person not an army on a regular basis.

  • Still no results on the blocked pavement drains & the weeds are back on the pavements already. Why do we pay council tax as basic maintenance isn't being done let alone the other issues.
