No road / footpath maintenance
Reported via iOS in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 19:08, Monday 3 August 2020
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 374429.
Repeated absence of hedge / road maintenance along Torgate Lane. Hedge overhanging footpath limiting the effective width of the path. This path provides the primary pedestrian route to OAP homes, residential properties, businesses and a very busy Doctors Surgery. All too often pedestrians are having to walk on the road because of the issues identified, this includes residents using wheelchairs and walking frames. Road maintenance - photo shows vegetation growing between the kerb stones and the highway, this inevitably leads to further degradation of the highway and premature failure.

Hedging now trimmed but vegetation still growing on the highway? Can you confirm that the upkeep of Torgate Lane hedging etc is now part of a planned maintenance schedule, or are you relying on residents to inform you when it becomes unacceptable and a safety issue?
