  • The nettles and over grown verge makes it difficult for pedestrians to walk top this side path. While for most footpaths on the outskirts of town this would not be a problem this path is used by around 200 pedestrians a day as the y park and walk their children to school at Gateway from parking on Aylesbury Road. The pathway is so narrow it is not possible for a parent and child to walk side by side without one walking in the road. Or for one person to pass another coming in the opposite direction. This risks an accident give the speed of vehicles often speeding on this stretch of road (speak to the road crossing operative). It looks as if this issue has ben reported in June and again in August, but the area not only needs to be cut, but the paths brushed and the pathways returned to its original widen suitable for people to walk two a breast. My concern is that there will be an accident as a children steps into the road to avoid either another child or nettles, and is hit by a car from behind. Please deal with this item urgently - it has already been reported multiple times and it seems no action has been taken.

  • Please can this issue be addressed with a matter of urgency. It is so unsafe for the school children walking to and from school who are having to now walk in the road to avoid the nettles
