The row of vegetation opposite houses 13-19 is not maintained. Smiths Wharf Managing agent have informed me it's the responsibility of the council. I've been taking care of cutting back hedges to keep the car access to these houses clear /leaf clearance and drain clearance in autumn to prevent flooding /weeding myself since I moved in 3 years ago, with the help of some of my neighbours, and use my own garden bin for the hedge cuttings/weeding. Could this please be added to the rota of gardeners who to the children's playground at the end? We have recently cut everything back, so it looks okay in the attached photo. Many thanks in advance for responding to this request. Best regards.

  • It sounds as though you should have taken photos before you cut it all back!
