michelle vince started this petition to hertsmere borough council (Managing director) and

Residents of Borehamwood are taking to the streets to cut grass and prune trees in an attempt to tackle the problem of unkept and unsafe  areas of overgrown vegetation. 

In many places grass is now knee high, over grown bushes and trees are infringing road junctions and pathways are obstructed by over hanging hedgerows. 

Whilst  we all care about our wildlife the overgrowth of grass and other vegetation has become extreme. Glass and other debris lays hidden in long grass.  Weeds  are so unchecked their seeds have blown into homes causing respiratory problems.  Road junctions are obscured. 

A majority of public open space be it  open areas or verges are owned by either Hertsmere, Herts County or Clarion Housing association. 

We demand that both Hertsmere and Herts County Councils  along with Clarion housing association urgently adddess this situation in an open and transparent way. Residents want to know a scheme of cutting and clarification as to which authority has responsibility for each area.  It must not be the responsibility of residents to ensure areas are safe and well maintained.
