Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

The pavement leading from the bus stop on A4074 towards Wallingford is very narrow, overhung with bushes and stinging nettles, so pedestrians have to walk in mud. The problem continues round the corner into Church road Benson, where the pavement is almost obscured with bushes, and pedestrians have to walk in the road on a dangerous corner. Wheelchairs and pushchairs cannot access Benson village via this corner. Also, the parking on the grass corner from patrons of the Waterside Cafe has made that area a mudbath and cars regularly park right across the path leading to the bollard, which is the only safe crossing place. Please help!
