  • Thank you for your enquiry. I have visited the site pinpointed on the map, see photo. After checking the land registry, It appears that these verges, in front of 42 Fogwell Road and in front and North side of 44 Fogwell Road, Botley are owned by and the responsibility of the residents of these properties. I have requested a letter be sent to these residents, asking them to cut back their vegetation, overhanging the footway, within 28 days of receipt.

  • Regarding the part of the footway verge, with the overgrown hedge obstructing it, in front of 38 - 40 Fogwell Road, this is not the responsibility of Oxfordshire County Council. After checking the land registry it appears this section is the responsibility of the Vale of White Horse District Council. You need to contact them at.
