Grass verge encroaching on pavement reducing width

Reported in the Pavements category anonymously at 13:56, Sunday 25 August 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Over the years the grass next to this footway has been growing over the tarmac reducing the width. There are also many weeds and grass growing through the gaps in the kerbstones - and potentially blocking the drains as there is occasional flooding.

Council ref: ENQ19841210

  • Just to be clear, cutting back vegetation would not be a solution to this problem. The turf needs digging off the top of the tarmac.
