The Public Footpath that starts from Wooton Road and runs between the houses in Crosslands Drive and Bourlon Wood is an absolute disgrace. It is almost blocked by high growing weeds that need to be cleared. It is well used by school children and dog walkers but is not kept in a condition that allows them to pass without collecting a nettle sting or being covers in wild grass seed. Can something be done about it as it really is an eyesore.

Thank you for your report, we are now investigating this issue and an update will be posted as soon as possible.

Please see my previous comments. Nothing has changed.
