Overgrown hedge on Chain hill by back entrance to school

Reported via mobile in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 20:38, Fri 8 July 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

I would like to report an obstruction on the footpath at the bottom of Chain hill (Wantage town end by the back entrance to the Wantage C of E school)

The bush who we believe is in a council owned properties garden as we have spoken to a gentleman who’s house it overhangs, is growing over half the pavement, forcing pedestrians to walk right over the edge of the curb and almost in the road, and this is a very narrow road where cars don’t tend to slow down, my partner has had his arm clipped by a lorries wing mirror recently,

I would appreciate it if someone could investigate and come back to me and advise if this can be pruned back/cut down as, also in the summer months, full of wasps causing another danger to the numerous school children walking past every day, and it’s an accident waiting to happen

Council ref: ENQ22929135

  • It's been nearly a month since was reported! There is no way for us to cross the road to be able to walk on the other side, so this is the only. Please get onto prunining this asap. Thanks.
