  • Our mapping shows that we do not carry out vegetation maintenance along this link footway, we only maintain the footway itself. You may wish to contact the Parish Council for advice. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • Although you say you don't clear vegetation you only maintain the footpath, surely to maintain the path you need to clear the vegetation! It shouldn't be the responsibility of those whose properties front this footpath to keep it clear, who is responsible please?
