Poor standard of work carried out on pavement referbishment

You have recently relaid the pavement on Prospect Road. The area outside my property (16 Prospect Road) is finished to a very poor standard.

The roots around the tree have not been cut back though you have cut them back on other trees in the street. There has recently been signs of cracking in and around my home and I've always suspected this tree to be the cause.

The bricks that you have lined the hole (for the tree) with are not fixed and just placed there. The neighbours children pick them up to play with them!

The hole itself is huge and unnecessarily large. It will soon be full of weeds and look awful.

For some unknown reason, you have created what looks like a flowerbed in front of my house, between the pavement and hedge. Again, this will soon fill with weeds and look awful. I understand you need to create a borderline somewhere but this should have been far closer to the property as the previous one was and as you have with my neighbours.

  • If anyone has actually visited the site, all that’s been done is the bricks have been laid into a straighter line; they are not fixed down by any means.

    This is still just an unsightly, unnecessarily large hole taking up much of the pavement with a huge tree root in it.

    As predicted, the ‘flowerbed’ which you created immediately in front of my border hedge is now over grown with weeds and looks awful. None of the neighbouring houses have this unsightly boarder.

    It was not my intention to post the last message anonymously. I welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you.

  • I have not posted anonymously and this is not resolved.

  • To clarify. This has not been fixed.
