I received a letter from Highways and Infrastructure on 5th July, dated 1st July. It advised me to remove overhanging vegetation so a new led streetlamp could be fitted - removal to be done within 14 days of the date of the letter. Apparently overhanging vegetation was preventing the work being done. No triffids on my premises, I'm happy to say - just a well-behaved waist-high box hedge and a slightly overhanging sumach. As it happens, the lamp-post had already been replaced without any difficulty, or comment by the workmen on the amount of greenery in the vicinity, on 17th June! Since, I'd trimmed one branch of the sumach with secateurs to stop it rubbing on the post.

How is sending out a letter like this, so long after the event, a good use of our cash-strapped Council's resources? Who decided on the threat posed by my greenery - and should they have gone to Specsavers? What happened to joined-up thinking? Has this happened to anyone else? Daftness indeed...

This is Wirral council here, sadly, no joined-up thinking from that bunch.
