Novers Hill Hedges

Reported in the Flytipping category anonymously at 17:04, Thu 10 July 2014

Sent to Bristol City Council 1 minute later

Novers Hill has for a very long time not had any service from the Council other than the recycling and waste collection.

The area that is of great concern to me and the neighbours is from Camberley Road to the bottom of the hill.

The areas of concern are that for about 2 to 3 years the road has not had a litter picker (as related by the last one that the cars are too fast and they are in the actual road) which does encourage others to fly tip or litter. NB. Twice a crew of "pay back" people have cleared the litter etc.

The very unkempt hedges, trees and undergrowth are grossly overgrown and despite requests this once nice roadside greenery was quite nice to look at and over. Currently it is nothing but a mess especially after (once a year) a Council contractor, without any particular skill cuts the over growth back appro: 2 foot giving better visibility to speeding vehicles.

This has been something I have been chasing with the Council for many years including a home visit with Council Officers.

  • This problem just goes from week to week. However, I must say that we do hear a mini road sweeper does run up and down the road, probably once a week. BUT, must enlighten that this is a very futile effort because it is designed to run against the kerbstone or something of a similar ilk and nothing like that exists in the section of the road reported. Would like to ask and not wishing to be rude would the initial report and follow-up have been read by the Council and after having read are they obliged to do something, even if it to say that they cannot do anything for whichever reason.
