  • We are taking appropriate enforcement action. The enforcement process can sometimes take a long time to complete. Although you may not see any site changes quickly work will still be taking place behind the scenes. Thank you for your patience while this work takes place.

    State changed to: No further action

  • Status says "No further action"??? The situation requires urgent action before someone is seriously injured! It is impossible to walk on the footpath and pedestrians are being forced into the road at it's narrowest point - close to the A16 junction!

    State changed to: Open

  • The hedge was cut back but not enough! It is still too restricted for people to pass by, prams or mobility scooter! Please get it cut back to reveal all footpath width.

  • This issue has not been dealt with! It has become even more important with arrival of heavy plant vehicles using road to access new building site.

  • Now the building site work has commenced, it is very important that the hedge is cut back to allow full width use of the footpath at this location. The carriageway is very narrow at this point. Please initiate action and confirm when done. I am very disappointed that this problem has been outstanding for 5 months!
