  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. After assessment we have requested that this footpath is included in a future programme of siding. Siding is a treatment where the full width of the footpath is restored by removing grass, weeds and soil mechanically or manually. We receive many requests each year across Lincolnshire and assess them all to treat the areas which have the greatest need that year. This means that some sites may not be treated this year but will be assessed again in subsequent seasons. These works are programmed during the summer for treatment during the winter. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action
