As you can see the Blackmore Lane has become very overgrown. When it rains it’s even worse. Mine is not the largest car but it’s getting scratched. Others will suffering even more.

  • I have twice now had to go down the lane to cut back the hedges. They are scratching really badly mine and every other car. If this continues I'll have little choice but to submit you with a claim for damages

  • Not been touched by SODC. I'v4 had to go out 4 times now to trim this back. What am I paying my Council Tax for? It's certainly not bins or being able to leave my house without scratching my car.

  • Hasn’t been touched by the council. I’ve been forced to go out and do it myself but it’s grown back again.
