    The verges on each side of the road leading up to Lower Wainhill from the B4009 are massively overgrown. They now scrap the sides of any vehicle driving up or down and are massively restricting the sight lines around the tight bends on the single track road which will ultimately cause an accident. The many walkers who use the road on the Chinnor loop are now reluctant to step off the road into the long grass to allow vehicles to pass by which again is an accident waiting to happen. With both sides now overgrown visibility of the road ahead has been hugely restricted which is dangerous on a single track road. Could the Council please URGENTLY come and run a hedge/grass cutter down each side of the road which will help all those both vehicular and walkers who use the road on a daily basis. Thank you so much!
