  • I agree, this pathway is getting out of hand and is used daily by families with children. It does need to be cut back. A leak or drainage problem in the Waratah Drive means that there is also surface water to the right hand side of the path after end of Oakdene Avenue (heading towards Victoria Road). This drainage problem should also be looked into. I hope the Council will now look to cut back the nettles and other weeds/plants on the path please asap.
