  • Can I ask why this is no further action please it’s in need of a good cut because the brambles are taking over the river bank and dog walkers family’s can’t enjoy the river view

    We have recently received your additional comment which advises this still needs to be completed.

    Unfortunately, due to breakdown, our current banks mower is out of action. We have this scheduled in for next week to be repaired, we are hoping that all will go successful and there are no further issues or delays on having this repaired.
