Begbroke lane up to the village hall

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 16:39, Sunday 20 August 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Large over hanging branches and shrubs causing the road to be smaller. Cars and vans are using the pavement as the roadway when there is oncoming traffic, the road has been narrowed due to the over hanging trees/ bushes. The playground sign recently installed can no longer be seen also due to the bushes.

Can this be delt with as a matter of a safety issue please.

It’s not safe for pedestrians walking on the only footpath down the road.

  • This problem is still not fixed. Householder has cut back approx 3 metres of their hedge, rest is still protruding into the road.

    Every year this is an issue and every year we report it to the council. Please firmly remind the householder their responsibility to prevent their hedge causing a hazard to road users.

  • Thank you for your enquiry Many areas of grass are cut by Town, Parish or other bodies and we have agreements in place with many of them for the highway verges to be cut by those organisations at the same time. These agreements only fund two cuts a year and those still cut by OCC are only cut annually between May and August. We will check this location and if it is deemed to be causing vision problems we will aim to get it cut sooner.
