Overgrown area impinging on footpath

Between the flats at the top of Mount View and a grass bank going up to the hop gardens road there is a level area behind a retaining wall with trees on it. The whole strip of land has become overgrown with brambles and weeds and there is couch grass overhanging a path that parents and children use to access Badgemore school. About 6 years ago or so? You cleared the area and planted some specimen trees, one of them was choked to death by other plant life a couple of years ago. There are some elder trees, trimmed back in the past, that have now become overgrown again. One I believe, is encroaching on a new tree put in? An apple tree at the other end is struggling to see the light of day. At the opposite end by some steps, if I don't cut them back, brambles overhang the steps and path at child face height. Some grounds person attention to this area would also be much appreciated from an aesthetics point of view, by the residents of the flats. Thank you in anticipation.

There have been some people here today with a strummer they have just gone along the edge of the wall, thrown the cuttings back onto the area of concern and left. Is that it?
