There is a grassy area area / verge outside the front of our place and other houses. As the road bends around, larger vehicles e.g. bin and also recycling lorry are churning up the grass verge in a big way. Some cars do park on the bend and so in theory the lorries are avoiding the cars. Anyway the council has responsibility for the grass area, and county council for kerb and 1meter in. Apparently the district council – have spoken to waste dept about vehicles, but say County council is responsible for the verge, and it all depends on ‘resources’. The county council says it is the responsibility of private waste management companies... to take appropriate action to not damage the verge, and they get so many issues with verges in this way. Ideally highways/ county council should install some verge hardening material; because presumably it’s potentially any heavy vehicle that could damage the verge and not just council vehicles...but this seems unlikely to happen. The verge needs repairing before the ground hardens, but what is stopping the next lorry coming along and digging it up again... I wonder if the council do grants for residents to arrange it themselves... Any ideas/strategies...?
