South Kesteven District Council is pushing for more overgrown green spaces in Stamford to be cleared.

The council has contacted the owner of a plot in Haddon Road to ask them to cut the long grass. The plot is one of several sold at auction by developer Jelson Homes last summer.

Separate plots in Casterton Road and Rockingham Road have been cleared after a campaign by angry residents. The Mercury understands Periathamni Selva Kumar, who owns those plots, does not own the Haddon Road plot.

Readers have reported other areas sold at auction have not been maintained. A council spokesman said all landowners were reminded of their responsibilities in May, adding: “To date we have repeated contact with the owners of Rockingham Road, Casterton Road and Haddon Road specifically on ensuring they understand their responsibilities to maintain the areas they own.”
