Over grown vegetation

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 11:20, Tuesday 14 May 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

I have emailed you over a week ago stating the threat and danger to the residents here and passing drivers of motor vehicles. The email included proper map references and photographs and highlighted the problem.

We can no longer exit out driveway safely due to the 'jungle' growing along the verge which is your responsibility to maintain, which is denying us visibility of the traffic approaching. This is despite me installing a mirror across the road to minimise the danger. There is no longer proper line of sight on exit from out driveway in a car driver position.

In the past, we have done our best to maintain safety to life by myself going out and cutting back your vegetation. Due to my worsening health issues, I am no longer able to physically cut back your unattended growth.

I would say this is a matter of growing urgency and that you give it strict attention asap.
