Urgend - prickly brambles on public path need removal

Reported via mobile in the Weeds category anonymously at 10:21, Tuesday 28 June 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Brambles dangerously overhand the public footpath right next to the bust stop G opposite 440 Southborough Lane. This has injured several people already as thorns catch passers by among which are many children. Please cut them urgently! Thanks

  • I am afraid it is a public health & safety issue and is for the council to address with the responsible party to remove the hazard. Please issue a request to 440 Southborough Lane to tidy up their brambles that encroach onto the public path and create nuisance and hazard. It is not up to local residents to challenge their neighbours.

It is not up to local residents to challenge their neighbours. This is a direct responsibility of the council to maintain safe public areas and paths for the residents, we pay huge council taxes for that!
