We reported the uncut grass via the Fix My Street website on 26th July, receiving a prompt reply:

“Good Morning, I have passed your enquiry through to the Area Supervisor who will inspect and arrange for the grass to be cut. Job Number 1307 003593. Kind Regards Customer Services”

Nearly two weeks later on 8th August we received another update stating the problem had been “marked as fixed”

We then sent an email to customer services at Flintshire County Council, and received the following reply:

“Thank you for your email which has been received by Customer Services. The job was passed onto the Housing section as the land belongs to them, this was signed off as complete. I have contacted Housing and informed them this grass still remains uncut.  I shall be in touch with further information as soon as I hear back”.

We didn’t hear back!
