The Bucks Herald has been trying to find out who is responsible for hedges between the Tring Road Tesco and the canal after complaints were made about rubbish there.

Ian Hawkins, a resident who raised the issue, said: “There is so much rubbish on the road down the side, parallel to the canal, all the way down to the nondescript warehouse behind Tesco.

“Some of it looks like it has been there for years and looks a real mess.”

Hoping to find out who is responsible for keeping the area tidy, the Herald contacted Aylesbury Vale District Council.

The council said it does not own the land and suggested it might belong the Canal and River Trust.

The trust said its responsibility ends just before the area in question.

Tesco said it does not own the land.

The district council has now promised to look into the matter to try and find out who is responsible for it.

If you would like to nominate a grot spot that you think needs highlighting, or are planning to tidy one up to make Aylesbury a better place to live, then please contact the Bucks Herald editor Roger Hawes by emailing roger.hawes@jpress.co.uk
