Over grown verges

Reported via iOS in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 19:52, Friday 25 June 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 400061.

Verges so overgrown visibility is dangerously poor. Single track road with no where for pedestrians to go if walking. Cars are starting to get scratched by the overgrown branches etc. Unacceptable maintenance for what is paid in council tax. This especially as there are now more properties along this part of the road meaning more council tax being paid.

  • This fault is not on the publicly maintainable highway. The maintenance of the hedges on this section of Littlefield Lane are the responsibility of the adjacent landowners and any damage caused is equally the responsibility of the same landowners to rectify. To find the owner of the land you could contact Land Registry at government/ organisations/ land-registry Thank you for reporting this matter.
