Overgrown hedge

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 13:11, Wed 18 September 2019

The hedge of the house on the corner is encroaching onto the public footpath. It has been like this since I last reported it in 2017, and again in 2018.

  • The hedge has been trimmed by about 1cm! It looks neater but it is of no help when you are trying to use the pavement.
