Brambles on village green, making fence weak

The weight of the overgrown brambles on the village green side, has put pressure on our fence and its now not secure and is bowing. I am unable to mend this, as the brambles are so thick we can not get to the fixings. The brambles are starting to tumble over also. Please advise who is responsible for the maintenance of this area.
Council ref: ENQ19828162

This is not something we would of planted and feel this would be the responsibility of the adjacent landowner. Regards

Apologies do you mean the owners of the green area? The only house in line with the fence, is mine and it would make no sense for these to be planted by this property. One side is my house then a fence then brambles into the grass area and then road. Surely who ever is responsible for the grass would look after this overgrown area also as it sits on the green

My last message is not showing on your site. I understand this land in own by the council, I appreciate the brambles we’re not planted on purpose but the fact is they are still there and are causing damage to my fence and I am unable to gain access to my fence posts to fix it. Should I be arranging for someone to remove the brambles and forwarding the invoice to you or will your arrange for this to be dealt with so we can avoid any further damage.
Look forward to hearing from you
