Reported multiple times over the last 18 months with no response. Case reference 1335913. Update received recently to say case now closed without an explanation or without work being actioned. Brambles which are on derelict council land are breaking through our fences. Our garden appears to have been trashed overnight by rats which are digging through under the fences from the dense brambles the other side where they appear to be living. This poses significant threat to children and pets living here. No amount of pest control will work whilst there’s at least 15ft deep brambles the other side. These brambles were cleared 3 years ago by the council. Please can this now be actioned as a matter of urgency.
