Following intervention by Cllr Stephen Fenton, the council has cut back the grass on the banks on St Helens Road either side of the railway bridge.
Complaints about the state of the area had been raised by the Dringhouses Sports & Social Club, and the overgrown vegetation was starting to encroach onto the footpath.

Cllr Stephen Fenton met with representatives from McColls and the Hallmark Real Estate Group on 26 October to try to get action to resolve some problems in need of attention in the area around the shops on Moorcroft Road.
The wet weather helped to demonstrate the woeful drains that don’t actually drain, causing lakes to form in front of the shops!
Other issues raised were:
- Rocking paving slabs
- Missing concrete bollard
- Trees in need of pruning
- Potholes in the car park at the rear of the shops
- General state of the paved area
We hope that the meeting will result in some action to improve this privately-owned area of land, and we’ll keep residents informed.
