Extensive weeds in Swales

Reported via desktop in the Damaged dyke, ditch or culvert category anonymously at 18:19, Mon 5 July 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 400839.

As part of the road adoption by the Council, existing turf on the Swales outside No 2 and No 4 Bowthorpe Close was removed. This has resulted in the proliferation of weeds. Both properties have voluntarily added the area of the Swales into their grass treatment contracts to cover ongoing care of the area, but the initial weed problem needs to be resolved urgently by the Council. Photos are attached showing details and the extent of the weed problem.
