Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, the Dean Court Road to Pinnocks Way link footpath, see photos, and assessed the issue that you have identified. I have requested 28 day notices be sent to the owners of the relevant properties to cut back their vegetation overgrowing and fix their wire fence obstructing this footpath.

If you consider them to be abandoned bikes, this issue is not the responsibility of the County Council and you should report this to the Vale of White Horse district council on this web page:

If you consider the bikes to be obstructing the highway, but not abandoned, this issue is also not the responsibility of the County Council and you should report this to Thames Valley Police.
It is an offence under Section 22 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 to park a vehicle in a dangerous position, this legislation is enforced by Thames Valley Police.
