THE grass is getting greener and longer in Flackwell Heath, with one resident complaining to the council about the hip-high verges.

Graham Reading, pictured peering through the overgrown grass, has said the council have not cut the verges in months.

The professional photographer who lives in Buckingham Way, Flackwell Heath, said: “It is obviously unsightly but you cannot see what is in it either before you walk on it.”

Despite being told there was a delay and the area would be cut at the end of May, residents are still yet to see any work being done on the verges.

In recent weeks many residents have come forward to complain about the length of grass in South Bucks.

Now the grass is being cut and is laying about on the verges where it blows onto the road into the gutters and from there it will get into the drains. Whatever money has been saved will be lost through all the extra work needed to clear up the mess

Why not get the Travellers to fixit as part of their dues to society? Or pave over the problem areas as Travellers are such experts at that?

Given the long dry spell I expect it will catch fire

You are dead right. Cars parked by the kerb with loose grass underneath are very vulnerable.
