Soil and grass buld-up half way across footway from field boundary, restricting footway width alongside busy A52 road. Hazzardous when wet.

  • This fault will be fixed as part of our next cycle of works. We cut the grass three times a year and treat weeds twice a year between April and October.

  • Wrong assessment, this is not a grass cutting issue. The Highways Act 1980 requires all vegetation and soil accumulation is removed for the full width of the footway, for the entire length from Brick Lane to Church End (north exit). Your quoted annual maintenance schedule (grass 3-times, weeds 2-times) is false, I attach 2 photos from Google Streetview (2021-May, 2019-May), neither show any clearing, 30%+ of the footway width is blocked (this links homes within the village), why are false unrelated activities concocted in these FixMyStreet report conversations? LCC “Highways Infrastructure Asset Management Plan” claimed inspections (if they exist at all) are failing to progress and enforce the legislation, basic annual infrastructure maintenance is not occurring. Previous 2020 notifications from residents with mobility issues remain outstanding. Why is the LCC Mobility policy being disregarded?

  • I further attach 2 more photos from Google Streetview (2021-May-a, 2021-May--b), “a” shows the unmaintained footway edge with 30%+ obstructed, “b” shows the cleared full width footway along a resident’s property boundary and an unambiguous illustration of the legislated maintenance not being undertaken. I remind you this is the busy A52 trunk road between Boston and Skegness compounded by significant large width agricultural vehicles.

  • I reference your claim "We cut the grass three times a year and treat weeds twice a year between April and October". None of the photos 2019 to date show any attempt at weed/grass control in your maintenance period, suggesting no inspections, please explain?

  • We apologise for the confusion of the latest Fix My Street update. We understand that this is not grass cutting work and work of this nature requires a specific, substantial works to be raised, which is not part of the routine Cyclic works. We have put this area of your concern forward for proposal for specific works to be carried out in future and will continue to assess and prioritise this area alongside all other areas with similar requirements. Thank you for reporting this matter.
