Excessive sycamore leaf drop onto road and pavement

Reported via desktop in the Excessive or dangerous littering category anonymously at 23:02, Sun 19 November 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 12 hours, 5 minutes later. Council ref: 5230601.

The sycamore trees opposite Nelson Villas have dropped excessive quantities of leaves in the past couple of weeks. No street cleaning has been undertaken over this period and the pavements are covered in leaves. Additionally the road which is used as a very busy cycle path as well as by walkers is extremely slippery due to the leaf drop. Finally the leaves are blocking the gulley adjacent to the pavement and will contribute to flooding risk when we have significant rain. I have swept up a lot of leaves today but there is a real risk especially with more elderly people accessing this path (due to the new Pegasus development) of someone slipping over on the decomposing leaf matter. Please come and clean it!!
