Grass verge on sidewalk of Westminster Way

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 15:10, Friday 3 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The grass verge of Westminster Way is overgrown for pedestrians. It's a narrow path with cars and buses coming in both directions - children walk (scooter/bike) to the schools using that path. There are nettles overgrown which pushes children towards the edge with cars coming too close. It'd be better if the nettles are dug out and replaced too but failing that, cut down completely.

  • Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, in front of 196 Westminster Way, which didn't tally with your photos. After looking along the road I assume you meant to pinpoint the stretch of verge between Yarnells hill and 178 Westminster Way, see my attached photos?

  • That's right, it's the stretch along Westminster Way and between Yarnells Hill and Raleigh Park Road. Apologies I put the pointer in the wrong stretch, the system actually logged me out halfway so had to redo it and picked the wrong side the second time round. Thanks for checking it.

  • Thank you for your update. The team responsible for grass cutting has been made aware of this location and your concerns. Urban grass verges are cut once per year and this should be cut under this program, see web link: https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/ residents/ roads-and-transport/ grass-cutting
    I am therefore closing this report.
