Indiscriminate spraying of weedkiller by Council workers

Sent to Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

St Anne's and Gathorne Road residents are proud of their attempts to increase bio-diversity by underplanting all the trees in these streets with pollinators etc. This is a successful part of the greening project that the Council supports. Council workers have recently sprayed and killed a number of these eg holly hocks, poppies and cornflowers. There is no way these can be confused with weeds. Please educate your workers and ask them to refrain form wholesale spraying.
