This is always an ongoing problem. The foot path/cycle path is getting very overgrown with weeds and needs clearing from in front of the Stuart Memorial Hall and the Anchor Hotel. Weeds are growing through the asphalt path and making it break up and sink. The path between the bottom of the foot bridge and the Anchor Hotel needs widening again and the branches need cutting back on the foot bridge and debris clearing away.
I received an email saying that the works are scheduled for the near future. However, it has still not been done and the area is now very overgrown and several complaints have been received from cyclist's and walkers, regarding being constantly stung by stinging nettles. I have been on the footbridge myself and removed some of the overhanging branches, that are a danger to people coming down the ramp near the trees. This is an area, that needs to be sorted much earlier in the year. I would suggest the whole area needs a cut back around the first week in June.

Still open, via questionnaire
It is ridiculous to leave the cutting of this pathway till September. The public have had to endure being stung by stinging nettles practically all summer. This area needs to be cut and weed control sprayed about the end of May or early June at the latest. Some areas of the path, the width of the path is reduced by at least 60%. Please schedule this in for next year.
State changed to: Fixed
