Dangerous Plant

I live in house at Bayswater Road Oxford and I would like to inform you that pavement next to the road is full of dangerous plant called Sosnowsky's hogweed (Heracleum sosnowskyi). Not only it is dangerous for people passing by but also it forces people to walk on the road as at some points it is impossible to walk on the pavement. I would really appreciate if you could react on that and make it possible for people to walk safely in the place where they are living.
