Overgrown vegetation on pavement

The vegetation including nettles and giant hogweed is encroaching on the pavement between South Newton and Stoford. This means pedestrians are pushed out towards the road. It’s a 40mph speed limit and many cars and lorries are going a lot faster. It’s quite scary trying to walk along there!

We shall look into this issue and aim to provide a response by 09/08/21.
Can we please ask that you check back on this date for an update.
