Severe overgrowth on pathway
Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 08:57, Sat 6 June 2020
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
I am a resident living on Pinnocks Way Botley, OX2 9DG and have been advise by sovereign housing to contact you directly with regard to the over growth on the pathway from 10a Pinnocks way upwards and the hazard it is posing to people given the height and length of thorns on the brambles.
I have taken photos of the affected area I have already sustained scratches from the overgrown brambles, which I am happy to share.
I am hoping this will be addressed before someone is really hurt.
I look forward to hearing from you and understanding what action will be taken

Thank you for your report. I have visited the site pinpointed on the map. This problem 'vegetation obstructing the footway' report was submitted to the team responsible, to be cut back.

Despite reports of having visited the site 11 weeks later and still action has been taken to address the reported issue. Is it going to take an incident of a person being hurt for this to be taken seriously?

The team responsible looked at the site yesterday and feel that the overgrown vegetation does not block the path totally, only partly. This site is still being assessed, in the system, for implementation.
