Overgrown Hedges on Hagbourne Road, Didcot.

Reported via desktop in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 14:45, Saturday 13 August 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Ever since the Calnan Brothers butchers shop at number 5 Hagbourne Road closed down about 2 years ago, and has been unoccupied ever since, the hedgerows, looking at the shop to the right, have become so overgrown with brambles it is not possible to walk on the pavement with a pushchair from fear of being scratched with thorns. There is also excessive ivy growing over onto the pavement. I'm not sure who this land belongs to, possibly the shops landlord ? So I don't know who is responsible for keeping the hedges trimmed. All I know is that it has only been getting worse since the shop closed down. Please help! By the way its OX11 8DP. Thankyou.
