Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The pathways are completely blocked by overgrown trees that should be cut right back to the So that they are behind the line of the path each time needs a trim only branches that hit you in the face I cut back. He’s either need removing completely to allow free access for prams wheelchairs and families to walk safely along the pathway without needing to walk in the road. If it is the problem of the resident they make it clear to them how far back the expectation is for the trees to go if it’s the responsibility of the council then I suggest you just cut them down completely as you’re not capable of keeping on top of them to allow free access.

  • I agree with this complaint, I was trying to negotiate the path recently, it's very overgrown and there is no option but to walk into the road,, the owners of the hedges need to take responsibility for keeping the pathway clear.
