Footpach between Birchwood Avenue and Ridgewell Close

Reported via desktop in the Tree/hedge restricting available highway category by Cllr David Clarkson at 11:39, Friday 2 June 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 460943.

The tree is reducing the overhead clearance across the width of this well-used footpath. Also, the verges on both sides of the path's length are overgrown and encroaching onto the footpath. This will only get worse as the vegetation inevitably continues to grow. The overall impression is of an unkempt and neglected area.

  • In this instance we don’t intend on taking immediate action. Because our current resources are extremely limited we have to focus our enforcement on matters of a significant danger or nuisance to road users. We can, however, continue to monitor the site during our routine inspections and will review the situation. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action
