The owner of overgrown green spaces in Stamford is looking at options for clearing them, according to South Kesteven District Council.

The authority asked Periathamni Selva Kumar to clear the plots in Casterton Road and Rockingham Road after a number of complaints from residents. The plots were bought from developer Jelson Homes at auction last summer but have not been maintained.

After an apparent visit from the landowner to the site on Saturday evening, a district council spokesman said: “The landowner is set to contact contractors to look at options to cut back the vegetation following a visit to the site on July 11.”

Residents angry at the lack of maintenance of the plots have put up large signs calling for them to be cleared.
