Overgrown plants blocking half the pavement

Plants from this property (3 Laburnum Rd) have grown over onto a stretch of the pavement, impeding safe access by pedestrians, especially those with buggies and wheelchairs. It has been a problem for a while but got worse recently with the plants’ spring growth. It needs attention.

Thank you for your report. I have visited the site you pinpointed on the map, by 3 Laburnum Road, see photos, and assessed the issue that you have identified. I have requested a 28 day notice be sent to the owners of 3 Laburnum Road, to cut back their vegetation that is overgrowing and obstructing our Laburnum Road footway.

Here is an update to your report. I re-visited this site on 21/06/2023, and noticed that the owners, of 3 Laburnum Road, haven't cut back their vegetation overgrowing and obstructing our footway, see latest photos. I have, therefore, requested another letter be sent to these owners, asking them to cut back this vegetation, overgrowing and obstructing the footway, within 14 days of receipt.

Here is a further update to your report. Sorry for the long delay as we have had problems establishing the location of the owners of 3 Laburnum Road in order to issue vegetation notices to them. I have, however, recently managed to establish who the owners are.
I have now re-visited this site and noticed that the owners have now cut back their vegetation overgrowing and obstructing our Laburnum Road footway, see newest photos. I am therefore closing this report.
