  • Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, in front of 9 Kempster Close, see photos, and assessed the issue you have identified. This "Overgrown weeds and grass on pavement" issue, unfortunately, doesn't meet our current, immediate, intervention criteria, so I cannot arrange a quick repair. I am requesting it be placed/logged onto the list of HATER (vegetation) jobs that will be assessed for inclusion in future programmed works, subject to there being no conflicting works and sufficient funds. We will continue to monitor this site during our routine inspections.

    I am also re-assigning this "Old, sick looking elder tree that ideally needs removing by lamppost" issue report to the Arboriculture Team to assess and investigate.

  • Here is a correction to my previous post, I am not re-assigning this "Old, sick looking elder tree that ideally needs removing by lamppost" issue report to the Arboriculture Team.

    Having checked our Highway Records Maps, I can confirm that this elder tree and the strip of land that it is situated on is not part of the highway network that Oxfordshire County Council is responsible for maintaining at public expense.

    You should try contacting the owner of the land it is situated on, e.g. the local Housing Association, Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council or Vale of White Horse District Council to pursue this matter. I am therefore closing this report.

    To contact:
    Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council:
    Email: enquiries@abingdon.gov.uk
    Phone: 01235 522642
    Website: http://www.abingdon.gov.uk

    The town council offices in Roysse Court are open to the public from 10 am – 2 pm, Monday – Friday.
    Their phone lines are open if you need to speak to someone at the council, however, you may find the information you need on their website or contact them via email first – this will also help them respond quickly to those most in need during what is a difficult time for so many.

    Vale of White Horse District Council:
    Phone: 01235 422422 (Text phone users add 18001 before you dial)
