Taking action in the Foxwood area

We’ve been out and about in the Foxwood area. We’ve found some issues which we’ve reported for attention.

Some problems – like nettles overgrowing the footpath on Bellhouse Way (from a private garden) – reoccur every year.

There has been a deterioration the appearance of the Rowntree estate (Wenham Road/Teal Drive) over the last few months.
