Woods in between Heatherdene and Highgate Farm

Reported via desktop in the Tree/hedge restricting available highway category anonymously at 20:24, Monday 12 February 2024

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 493393.

Woods in between Highgate Farm, Heatherdene and then towards Great Carlton before the green lane are very over grown and have swallowed up the grass verge and are now encroaching onto the highway. This has been reported numerous times Council ref: 468882. The woods belong to Stephen Phillips who employed Greencuts for some remedial work but they were told not to do the road boundary as he believes its not his responsabilty. Stephen Phillips lives in Edinburgh. THE WOODS DO NOT BELONG TO HIGHGATE FARM OR HEATHERDENE please do not write to these properties and then mark it solved...its not!
