Opposite 19 and 17 Bure Lane, Didcot, OX11 7QP

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Would it be possible to cut back and tidy a hedgerow and tree which borders a footpath (the Ladygrove loop) these are opposite 19 and 17 Bure Lane? In Didcot, OX11 7QP. I have checked with the local council and they have no responsibility for it. They have suggested I contact yourselves. It is so overgrown that it is now dangling into the path of walkers from above, catching people’s clothing with the brambles and the path is restricted to one person to walk through. On the opposite side it is now encroaching on parking spaces. The tree has also grown large and is blocking light.I’d be grateful if you could let me know the result of this email.

    Can you please raise this at a high priority? As the bushes are getting out of hand meaning social distancing on this street is impossible. Also, its hiding all the uneven surfaces of the road which is a real risk of injury. Some neighbours have tried to help trim some areas but its now impossible to walk through without ducking and socially distancing.
