Very overgrown brambles

Reported via desktop in the General litter category anonymously at 09:52, Monday 12 September 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

For the last 46 years my family have enjoyed this park as it has always been a lovely open space for local children to play in due to its open grassy space. Our allotment and home back onto it too. Over the past 10 years or so the brambles on the east side of the park have gradually taking over the grass area as they have not been maintained when the grass is infrequently cut. I reported this matter a few years ago and still nothing has happened. I appreciate that we need brambles and hedgerow for birds and small animals, but they are becoming a place for litter and dumping of rubbish and are invading our children’s open space to enjoy. Last year we actually had someone living in the field in a tent for 9 months, hidden by these brambles. Please can I ask for someone to come and inspect the now very wide band of brambles and can some management take place before there is no grass to be cut. There have always been a band of brambles surrounding that side of the field but they are now rather overgrown. I have noted that other parks and fields are regularly managed but ours seems to be overlooked. Primrose Close elderly sheltered housing is regularly maintained but the field isn’t. I would appreciate a reply please. With many thanks.
