Erosion of village green

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 16:20, Monday 5 April 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The Village Green is getting more and more damaged by vehicles driving over the edges. As you can see from the picture there is significant damage to both sides of the village green and substantial erosion of the end of the green by traffic. The traffic is to / from Dysons Wood and to/from the farm. When vehicles are wide, driven fast or carelessly they drive on the grass and erode the edges. This is especially true of large farm vehicles and also delivery vans. I think we need some sort of protection fitted at the end of the green and for 10-12' alongside the edges - maybe kerb stones, or wooden railway sleepers together with some signs to show that is a green, not to be driven over.

  • The Green at Tokers Green is shrinking rapidly due to large heavy vehicles driving over the grass bank of the green. The laurels and shrubs opposite the green have been cut back a little. I wouldn’t say 4 feet has been cut back as requested in the last ‘fix my street’ request. The green needs posts to be erected or sleepers to protect the area.
