The grass verges along Kelby Path SE9 are in desperate need of a cut. Soon it will be difficult to use a mower. The footpath is so unsightly in this condition.

    Hi - thanks for raising this - Kelby Path grass cutting has come up quite a lot in recent years. We have contacted the Council to ask for it to be prioritised for a cut, and we've also asked for some information as to what the current schedule is so we can keep an eye on this.

    Best wishes John, Matt and Roger

    Hi again - just to follow up on our earlier update - we asked council officers to look at this and understand they arranged for the grass on Kelby Path to be cut on Monday just gone (24th May). Thanks again for raising this.

    We’ve also asked what the schedule should be - we’re told that Kelby Path *should* be cut once a month, by Highways. If that doesn’t happen, let us know by emailing CHNEwardteam@gmail.com or report again on here and we will get straight on the case.

    Best wishes, John, Matt and Roger

  • Hi. Following your last update when you stated that the grass should be cut monthly, you asked me to contact you if it wasn't cut again. It is now 5 weeks since the last cut so it is not on a monthly schedule like the Council said.

  • The grass along Kelby Path still remains uncut after nearly six weeks and is dreadful after all the rain. So much for a monthly cut! The path looks neglected and reflects on my property.

    How frustrating - thanks again for flagging this, and for sharing the photos on here which is helpful. As per our email exchange, we’ve raised this again with Council officers and asked them to resolve ASAP.

    Best, Cllr Matt Hartley
