Reoccurrence of narrowing of road with grass cuttings

Reported via desktop anonymously at 08:00, Friday 14 April 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later

This issue has previously been investigated and resolved 2021 - this week the road and verge outside The Lamb pub is being narrowed with grass cuttings again and is dangerous and slippery.

The previous issue reported was as follows in 2021 - the owner of the Lamb needs reminding that this has been an issue before and is not acceptable. Can you arrange for someone to look into this again and prevent it getting worse as it creates significant danger on this residential road.

Added Mon 3 May 2021 – Road Restriction, Satwell.

This road is becoming increasingly dangerous - the overall gradual narrowing and the piling up of garden waste and branches means that the road is constantly wet and covered in rotting materials (I witnessed a man cutting branches off the shrubs opposite the Lamb Pub and laying them into the road to extend the verge). The council need to come and clear back the build up so that the road is back to being the width of two cars to avoid there being a serious accident. SODC you need to look into this especially as there is now a planning application in place for the property.
