The hedge is very overgrown making it impossible to stick to the pavement, with a push chair of wheel chair you would be forced to walk on the grass.
Council ref: ENQ20865849

I walk past 11 Darrell Way every day and this large hedge has now almost taken over the pavement. This is making it very difficult for pedestrians, disabled and pushchairs to use and it’s got to be damaging council property! This needs sorting out as soon as possible especially with the schools returning. Perhaps you should issue a weeks warning notice to say if it not removed by then your own contractors will remove and dispose off at the residence costs.....

I’m surprised the council haven’t done anything about this as everyone has to walk on the grass. It must be damaging the public footpath and it’s very inconsiderate for the disabled and pushchairs.

I walked past the other day and now that there are no leaves on the hedge you can clearly see how much it is over the footpath there is a least a foot and half overhanging the pavement.
