Verges around Chequers Orchard
Reported via desktop in the Grass cutting category anonymously at 15:25, Wed 29 November 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5265639.
Grass verges have been torn up due to volume of traffic and parking. Whole sections are essentially mulched grass and turned over mud. Can the verges please be inspected and the possibility of being paved over in some capacity considered.
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.

With more and more households owning multiple vehicles, parking has become an issue in some areas, drivers who park on a footpath can in some cases, force users of wheelchairs and pushchairs to use the road which is both dangerous and thoughtless.
If there are road lines/marking on the adjacent road, or there is a bylaw for the area (should be on a signpost at the site) we can, subject to available resources, send a civil enforcement officer (traffic warden) to go and assess, and if a vehicle is parked in contravention of a parking restriction, a penalty charge notice may be issued. However, if there are no road markings on the adjacent road we as a council are unable to take any action, in these cases we would suggest you contact Thames Valley Police as they are responsible for the enforcement of traffic laws, which includes speeding, dangerous driving and dangerous parking please contact them on their non-emergency number 101.
