Area off St Georges Road and Barncroft

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 16:15, Thursday 16 May 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

The area outside of my house and on the corner of St Georges Road is a disgrace. It was strimmed a few weeks ago but of course the weeds are now about 12" high again. I used to keep this area tended and mowed and it looked very respectable. However, whilst the gas repairs were being carried out in our area it was used as a dumping ground for vehicles and machinery, from which it has never recovered. The ground is completely uneven and there is no grass at all - just enormous weeds and unfortunately I am not able to pull them out. Please will you send someone to rectify this area for me as it does not look at all pleasant for neither St Georges Road or Barncroft?

Council ref: ENQ19833331
