Council ref: 404696. Thank you for your quick response to the above matter and your acknowledgement the highway (footway) has deteriorated in condition.
The HIAMP details the following: 4.8.6. The Council carries out total weed control operations on areas of paving and hard standings, kerb and channels, back of footway, base of walls and around street furniture. Weed spraying covers a total of 4600 km of kerbs, and is undertaken bi-annually. Weed spraying does take place on kerbs on this particular residential estate but NO spraying on the paved footway itself!!!
NO TOTAL WEED CONTROL IS TAKING PLACE

22/08/23 Richards Avenue. The footpaths on both sides of the road are in need of attention. Uneven slabs, together with the vegetation growing between the slabs, and the stones from a few driveways on the parents (never swept back on the driveways) are a serious trip hazard! This is a problem every year, but the uneven slabs are getting worse! These issues need addressing before somebody has a fall (maybe they have already). Photos are from earlier in the summer - it’s a lot worse now.
