This hedge has grown so thick & wide it blocks a public footpath & makes it very difficult to push a pushchair without getting into the muddy grass. The hedge is on the property called Holly Lodge in Holly Close.
Council ref: ENQ19827426

Thank you for your report and our apologies for the delay in responding. We did have an issue establishing who the owner was but we have now contacted them asking that they cut back the vegetation obstructing the footway. We will continue to monitor.

It's now three months since you closed this case but nothing has happened. Perhaps you should follow up more forcefully as the obstruction is still a major issue. People with mobility issues & mothers with Prams & pushchairs are seriously inconvenienced. Thank you

This still remains an issue! This time of year, not so much, but in wet winter months it's impossible with a wheelchair or pushchair.
