As a Checkendon PC member I've looked at the site and agree the problem is one that will affect pedestrians and cyclists the most. However, the scratching of car paintwork is a very real possibility given how narrow the lane is. Consideration must also be given to seeing to this before the possible disturbance to nesting birds also becomes an issue. We do not currently have any contact details for the landowner(s).
