A hedge at the perimeter of a private house is overhanging & blocking a public footpath.

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 21:15, Sat 23 February 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

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.
