I have previously reported this problem and nothing has been done. Please can the owners be asked to trim back or can OCC do it if they fail to do so and then bill the homeowner. Children walking to school from Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, disabled and pushchairs users need to drop in the road to pass. With the speed of vehicles this is a safety concern not to mention those wanting to maintain social distance.

  • Thank you for your report. Parts of this hedging do not have registered owners so there is no one we can chase. I have requested that the section that has not been cut back is added to the list for this type of work. I have also requested that this section of footway is sided out, to give as full a width as possible and have the moss removed, however all this work is funding dependent. There is access along this route by walking in front of nos 129 to 153. This report is now closed.
