Walking along the pathway this morning with a friend and found pyracantha bushes had been cut back, this also applies further along Camborne Drive on the right hand side towards the shops. This also has been cut and deliberately left. This shrub as you know is very thorny. Camborne Drive bushes have been cut back on one side I believe last month but the other side has not been cut at all hence this happening I presume.

  • This problem still exists although the area did get cleared after reporting this last time. The cutting of the Pyracantha bush is happening again but further along Camborne Drive still on the right hand side but passed the end of Penzance Way again going towards the shops, the thorny branches are being left this time on the grass close to the path.

  • When is something going to be done? We do have a councillor (Rob Tromans) who lives a few metres from where this has occurred but he obviously does not see this. I will click 'yes' AGAIN to receive a status check but will anything be done?? (date sent- 18/01/17)

  • I am honestly surprised that today (15th March) at 13:20hrs. I have received some response which is clearly only what seems to be what I have reported to Warwickshire Count Council, this started 17:05hrs. Fri 11 November 2016. My last correspondence to yourselves as regarding this was 16:30hrs. Wed 18 January 2017. I gave up as the area still has remains of dead pyracantha branches from bushes on parts of the grassed area and the edges of the pathways.
