Vassall Councillors tackle tree roots on Myatts Fields South

Tree roots have always been a problem on Myatts Field South estate.

After numerous walkabouts with members of the TRA, residents, and council officers, Vassall's Labour Councillors have succeeded in getting plans together to restore a whole area of pavement.

A section of footpath behind St. Lawrence Way has been cordoned off for some time, but now two alternative ways of dealing with the problems are being investigated – tarmacadam and paving stones. Each option has advantages so we are consulting the residents on which they would prefer, before a decision is taken.

Vassall Councillor Adrian Garden  commented "Kingsley and I are pleased that we have been able to develop a solution to this problem which we will shortly be talking to local Myatt's South residents about. Although it may seem only a small issue tree roots can impact on people's day to day lives making the area dangerous and restricting where they can walk around their homes. I am pleased that we are on track to get this problem sorted."
