Thorny bushes growing over pavement

Bushes outside the school on Wroslyn Rd near the corner with Oakland Close are growing over the pavement and are reducing the passable width of pavement substantially, particularly when car doors are open. They are mainly wild rosebushes, and I have already cut my hand on the thorns. The pavement is used by many children who are likely to get the long, thorny branches caught on themselves (including faces) and could be scratched or cut, particularly as the plants grow over the next few months.
Thank you for your report, we are now investigating this issue and an update will be posted as soon as possible.

Thank you for your enquiry. We have investigated your report and it has been actioned to be fixed. This will be added to our HATER list. The budget is spent for this year but when next year's budget becomes available it will be added to the list of works to be undertaken. I am unable to confirm when this will be, but hopefully it will be within the first 3 months of the new budget being available.
