Overgrown hedge plants blocking view from bus stop

Reported via mobile in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 21:08, Wednesday 31 August 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

For a couple of months now the buddleia and other hedge plant have overgrown the boundary fence at 1 Colegrove Down so low that the view up the hill for bus users waiting at the bus stop on Cumnor Hill is almost completely obscured. I have seen people in the queue step into the busy road to see if the bus is coming and have to step hurriedly back on to the pavement again as a vehicle approaches. A safety issue as well as an access one.

Council ref: ENQ22932860
