Plants overhanging path

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 09:33, Wednesday 30 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The bush has been overhanging the footpath for over a year now. Although there is no signage to let vehicles know the path is there it is a much used route and its clearly visible on the grass beside the path that people are unable to walk along the path due to the overhanging plants.

  • The plants continue to overgrow. I have tried to reroute a thorny bramble that was starting to protrude across the path at face height.
