Hedges encroaching pavement

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Good morning. The hedges that sit on the north east side of Folly Orchard Road between the residential properties (accessed from South Stoke Road) and the pavement that runs along Folly Orchard Road are lacking in any attention by the responsible owners. As a result they are encroaching and minimising the width of the pavement, not to mention creating additional debris being dropped on the pavement as the leaves drop and increased winds. This results in the pavement being slippery when wet. The hedges and trees form part of the boundary of Daintree Cottage, South Stoke Road and Folly Orchard Road and also Roselands, South Stoke Road and Folly Orchard Road. Please can these hedges be cut back to create a clear path on the pavement. If they aren't cut back this season, they will have progressed much further by next year when you are unable to cut hedges without harm to birds and restricting the pavement even further. Thank you.
