Thanks for the replies. Think I will investigate the weedkiller and go with the regular cutting route. This is the first summer since the work was done and to date, the bl***y things don't seem to have learnt the lesson from cutting.
Regarding complaining to the developers, it's not quite like that. There were three independant new builds, and one of them arranged for their landscapers, more as a favour to everyone facing the roundabout, to tidy it up (it was being used for builder parking,) grass seed the surrounding and leave the bushes, shrubs and trees. Even with the bramble peeping through, it looks sooooooo much better than it did.
