Across the country there are thousands – probably hundreds of thousands – of plots of land where the ownership isn’t clear. Some roads (like Birch Road in Gatley) are “unadopted”. Some paths, like the path down the side of the Tatton site, aren’t owned by anyone. The Council isn’t responsible for them and it’s not always clear who is.
One area we didn’t realise was in this category ia the triangle of bushes at the corner of Old Hall Road, just across from “conker island” and by the old graveyard.
The bushes are growing over the pavement. In the past the Lib Dem team have cut some back and we think the council must have done it from time to time too.
But the council doesn’t own that land, so isn’t responsible for it.
Council officers are trying to find out who owns the land, and so who should maintain it. In the meantime the Lib Dem team will get down in the next few days and cut back the worst of the overhanging branches.6 Comments
