During a walk about in Kingsland Road yesterday a number of residents complained to Councillor Barbara Dring and my self about the state of their grass verges. This is not an uncommon problem in the Oscott ward where many grass verges have been ruined by cars parking on them
The Council needs to decide what to do about these verges. There are 4 main options in my view. Tar Mac them, replace the turf, use Grasscreete (a concrete which allows for grass to grow through) or consider giving better discounts where it is possible to allow home owner to have drop curbs to take their cars off the verges.
The Council should start a long term phased program into looking at the state of our verges and then do something about them.
