Heyford Hill lane hedges overgrown and obscuring the paths

The hedges are overgrown and obscuring the path along Heyford Hill between Buckler Place and the row of houses opposite Yeftley Drive. To walk that side of the road you have to walk on the grass verge.

  • They cut back the bushes at the bottom of Heyford Hill lane but have not done the ones reported here, not sure why as they were in the vicinity.

  • The path is not usable. Push chairs can not use the path and have to be pushed onto the grass. Some of those bushes are prickly and will rip a jacket. The grass is wet and muddy and it’s only a matter of time before someone slips and does themself harm. What I still can’t understand is why these weren’t trimmed when the bushes at the bottom of Heyford Hill lane were done, they were reported at the same time.

  • I would second what has been said above. It is impossible to walk on the path and the branches (some of them spikey) hang down at eye-level. The grass verge is getting very churned up and muddy and therefore slippery. It is a pain to keep crossing backwards and forwards over the road with a pram or buggy especially where there is no dropped kerb.
