The hedges opposite the BNG school's entrance (in Springfield Av) need to be trimmed back; some take half of the pavement. When it rains this other half gets flooded so you dont get a choice but to walk through a puddle or very muddy slippery grass. It becomes a useless sidewalk

Council ref: ENQ19845055

    Thank you for following up on this. Although the owner did a bit of trimming a few days ago, it was a very short trim indeed and didn't really resolve the issue. See the attached picture (taken after the trimming was done) - still about 1/3 of the pavement is taken over by the hedge and when it rains the rest of the narrow pavement gets completely flooded and muddy. Not much has changed.
