There was a lot of ragwort growing on this verge adjacent to my horses fields. I reported it in the summer explaining it needed cutting down before it went to seed. This was never done. I have now just received an email informing me the case has been looked at and closed! It's no longer an issues because you left the ragwort, it went to seed and has now died back. I'm not sure how you consider this dealing with the issue and therefore able to close the case? Ragwort is extraordinary effective at seeding and I will now have massive crop in my horses fields for the next two years. Can you please make a not that come next June/July this needs to be dealt with by the Council and cannot just be ignored? I would be grateful if someone could come back to me. Kind regards.
