York Way jungle

York Way jungle
the scrubby area in front of transeuropean autos has turned into a small jungle. not sure who is responsible for this patch will try islington council though it may be camden.

will see if i can find sheep to graze it.

UPDATE 16 July
Chris Demetriou at ICSL has got his teeth into this trying to work out who is responsible – i paste his email in below

Please see below email and photograph of grass area in York Way j/w Randells Road, is this an area Greenspace can look after?
If possible, please could you arrange for the area to be litter-picked?
If Greenspaces not responsibility please can we ascertain who the land belongs to?
Thank you

    Responsibility for this land is ambiguous because it’s been created by the realignment of York Way. I am not even sure if it is public highway at all. Camden has responsibility for the roadway and pavement but this is further east of the highway. It might still even be CTRL land so I have asked Islington’s Environment Dept to establish what the ownership situation is. When the new pavement was laid it struck me that no-one could stop people using the “natural” walking route into Randalls Road. It’s now a well worn footpath and I think we should press for a paved path there.

    this is a good example of an emergent pathway, where actual people have developed a track more appropriate to their needs than the pavement. i use it whenever i go round that corner. the plants appear to be some interesting small ground hugging bush with quite jolly yellow flowers.

    come the winter it can be paved perhaps ( this is an actual policy of some planning depts)
