Hedges need cutting back

Hedges causing a blind spot when walking along the footpath when turning onto Summerfields from Rainbow Way. Although not a cycle path cyclists use this as a cut through and they cannot be heard or seen until they are upon you.

  • I would like a path returned to the size they should be you can see from some of the photos exactly where the path should start and finish they are so narrow you cannot push a pram or wheelchair along and in several areas are needing to go into the road to be able to walk along the street. This isn’t acceptable. Who is responsible for people that the trees are adjacent to their property or the council? If it’s the responsibility of the homeowner tenant and in force them to sort it out if it’s your responsibility then get on and fix it I asked in August and I’m asking again!!!

  • The anonymous post received today relates to the footpath along Mattock Way. This is nothing to do with my complaint, although when walking back from the bus stop the other day I had to walk in the road as the hedges were so overgrown. I think these are the responsibility of the homeowners. Back to my complaint my daughter cut back the brambles that were hanging over the path from the laurel hedge skirting the footpath from Summerfields to Rainbow way. The laurel hedge needs taking down several feet as it’s enormous.
