Grass extremely long throughout vilkage
Reported via iOS in the Grass cutting category anonymously at 09:41, Saturday 27 May 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4602034.
It’s nearly June and the grass verges etc in the village have not been cut. This is now unacceptable it is Causing a serious health and safety risk to all road users and pedestrians due to obstruction of pavements and visibility. I believe council tax payers money is being misappropriated by contractors not being followed up with their performance.
An officer will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days and arrange to have the issue resolved as soon as possible after that.
We can confirm that our grass cutting programme for this year has commenced.
Please be advised that we are unable to give specific dates for urban grass cutting. Our works programme is very weather dependant and subject to delays. We therefore ask that you remain patient should there be delays or excessive growth in-between cuts.
