Hedge growth for approx. 400 meters

Reported via desktop in the Grass and Hedges category by John Honsinger (Chairman Stratton Parish Council) at 17:08, Friday 5 March 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

A number of people have reported to the Parish Council that their vehicles have been scratched by the thorny hedge row on the left hand side of the Bicester road (adjacent to the old Quarry/Bicester Motion site). This needs to be cut back to the fence line over a distance of circa 400 meters. Not only will this prevent a potential hazard but this stretch of road is prone to freezing and it is believed that the overgrown and high nature of the bushes contributes to this freezing.
