  • Thank you for your enquiry. The path and trees have been assessed. Upon inspection it was found that multiple willows have growth incurring into the path. Please ignore the title of this enquiry "not responsible" I am limited with what title to answer the enquiry with. Though these trees are not in the ownership or management of Oxfordshire County Council. I do have responsibility in ensuring footway/highway is free from obstruction to allow free passage. Therefore I will be informing Woodstock town council that they should cut back their trees along this stretch. I would advise that you also make this enquiry with the Town Council. Thank you for highlighting this.
