Footpath Overgrowth

Reported via iOS in the Overgrown tree/hedges category by Keith Cooper at 05:53, Mon 21 June 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 399233.

I recently cycled with my daughter down the foot path from the three horseshoes pub to lerverton cafe in lerverton. You can hardly see the path itself because it is overgrown that much. It would be safer walking on the road of the A52 an that can be dangerous itself. There’s even trees hanging down so that you need to Crouch down to get by them. I’m not sure the last time this was trimmed back but by the look of it. It could be couple of years or more an as there is a bus stop an a lay-by there. How are people supposed to walk down a public foot path.

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. After assessment we have requested that this footpath is included in a future programme of siding. Siding is a treatment where the full width of the footpath is restored by removing grass, weeds and soil mechanically or manually. We receive many requests each year across Lincolnshire and assess them all to treat the areas which have the greatest need that year. This means that some sites may not be treated this year but will be assessed again in subsequent seasons. These works are programmed during the summer for treatment during the winter. Thank you for reporting this matter. We have identified this location as a proposal for siding out and cutting back and this has been raised independently of this report. Thank you for reporting this matter.
