Excessive Ivy coming over the wall from the park

Reported via mobile in the Weeds category anonymously at 14:51, Friday 1 July 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Please remove the Ivy from the park wall that separates the garden of number 11 Betts Close from the park. As you can see from the photo it is now a very real problem. 2 photos attached - second one taken from the park.

  • Hi, Sadly the job is not complete. As you can see from the attached photos, taken this afternoon, the Ivy has not been fully removed.

  • It is still not fixed. Here are more photos. Your contractor seems not to understand that clearing the Ivy means clearing it… Perhaps one of your staff needs to check their work when they say they have completed a job… More photos to follow… Thanks for your help.

  • The Ivy has now mostly been taken off the wall and is laying all over the ground by the wall. They have however NOT cleared the top of the wall (see second photo). Also someone has now put graffiti on the wall… 😔. This whole area alongside the close looks really bad, stinging nettles, brambles and Ivy plus everyone seems to dump their rubbish there too…

  • The contractor called me today and said although they had now removed the Ivy from the face of the wall they could not remove it from the top of the wall from the park. I have now taken my little ladder into the park and removed the Ivy from the top of the wall… It took me just over an hour… The Ivy that has been pulled off the face and top of the wall now needs to be removed from the park to complete the job, otherwise it will just grow up the wall again… I understand from the contractor that the stinging nettles, Ivy, brambles, felled trees and rubbish etc that are all along this side of the park are to encourage wildlife but surely there are enough areas like this in the park already and the brambles, Ivy, stinging nettles etc keep coming through the fence into our close… Surely this small edge could be kept a little under control? It would be very much appreciated.
