Weeds along footpath
Reported via mobile in the Pavements category by Kennington Parish Council at 15:45, Wednesday 23 June 2021
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
This footpath is very overgrown with weeds along the path and overhanging branches from neighbouring properties. The fence is also still leaning in at the Rowles Close end, which makes it feel very cramped.
Council ref: ENQ21898582

Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, The Rowles Close to Kennington Road link footpath, see photos, and assessed the issue that you have identified. I can confirm that the vegetation overgrowing and obstructing this footpath is private vegetation, growing from, and the responsibility of, the owners of the adjacent properties. I have requested letters be sent to these owners, asking them to cut back their vegetation, within 28 days of receipt.
In reply to your comment regarding the 'This footpath is very overgrown with weeds along the path'. This issue is not the responsibility of Oxfordshire County Council. Street cleaning of the footway and carriageway (including this soil with the weeds growing from it, created by decomposing fallen leaves etc.) is the responsibility of the Vale of White Horse District Council.
