Spring Lane is a two way road but is only single vehicle wide. For most of the lane there is a pavement to one side. The other side is a long narrow piece of council responsibility land from the tarmac edge to the boundary fences of property in Bleheim Way. This land is never maintained by the council and is now a serious problem as the trees, brambles, stinging nettles and others are now growing over the roadway, both restricting the cariageway width and causing damage to residents vehicles. There are also telephone cables running through the trees causing a potential break in phone service during a storm.

All the trees and brambles should be cut back to at least the edge of the tarmac to give full use of a very narrow lane. Also the land should be maintained to stop the gulleys being covered over and being made useless. This situation has got worse over the years and is now more than just a nuisance.
