We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. The area was visited and assessed on 18th May 2022, and whilst there are some weeds visible, these are mainly within the kerbline and no tripping hazards due to weed growth within the footway, or kerbline, were identified. The verges are not encroaching into the footway, with the full widths being available for use by pedestrians, etc. Any issues with the standard of the cut the grass verges receive need to be directed to the Town Council, as they maintain the highway verge on behalf of LCC. The weed treatment in Louth is due to the week commencing 6th June 2022, and we allow a 21-28 day window for the effect to be visible as dieback. Please be aware that LCC treat the weeds but we do not remove the weeds, as ELDC are the street cleansing authority, so any requests for weed removal, including road sweeping, can be made via the Town Council or to ELDC. You can contact ELDC at https://www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/ contact-us Thank you for reporting this matter.
