A pleasant feature of our area is the extent of grass verges alongside our roads and pavements. However, all too often these are being churned up by unauthorised vehicles, often causing extensive damage to our pavements at the same time. Repair and reinstatement is an expensive business and we shouldn’t just expect council tax payers to pay up. The Residents’ Association endorse a much more vigorous regime of accountability is applied, for example enforcing a condition of planning permission or of utility works, so that any damage is repaired and paid for by those who cause it and not by everyone else.
