Unkempt area between Majors Rd and Curtis Close

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

I am enquiring about a small strip of land adjoining my property. It does not get maintained and is a total eyesore. There are a few trees (with branches dead branches needing to be cut off. I'm told by the parish council that the management company of the Bovis estate is responsible for the strip between my boundary fence and the trees (which the management company denies) and the district council is responsible for the strip between the trees and the kerbside. Nobody is maintaining it (except for myself by gathering litter, killing off weeds and removing dead debris) and I want to get in contact with someone who can give me advice on this matter. The area adjoins the backs of the properties on Curtis Close (around no. 32). It is a Bovis built estate in 2015. I would like to know how much of this area is part of the publicly maintained highway and if it is, I would like to discuss maintenance of the area.

Furthermore, part of the pavement on Majors Road was replaced a few years ago after the pipes were replaced. The temporary surfacing that was used is still there. When is the permanent surface going to be put in place?
