  • If you get stung regularly then you know it's a hazard so don't go near it, it's what's in law as YOU endangered yourself as you are aware of the danger

  • The nettles are still overhanging the footpath. When the wheelie bins are awaiting collection the footpath is very cramped and a hazard for young children going to school. Further a black wheelie bin has been abandoned on the footpath and is a permanent obstruction

  • Push the wheelie bin to the end

  • Resident has called chasing for an update as the srting nettles are still overgrown and are now covering the whole pathway and no children from the school can walk on the pavement, this is dangerous for them

  • Still overgrown and growing strong. To those saying “don’t go near it”, that’s not that easy if you live there. Yes, residents could cut it themselves but people could also take their own rubbish to the tip every week. We pay rates to have these services provided. Or not as the case may be.
