Overgrown Hedges and Bushes - Thorney Leys Road, Burwell Meadow and Ducklington Lane - Major Issue for the Elderly, Blind and Disabled Community

Reported via desktop in the Hedges category anonymously at 10:49, Wednesday 12 June 2024

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Please could you sort out all the overgrown hedges, bushess and tress that are overgrowing the pathways especially around the pathways both in Burwell Meadow and the main walkway along Burwell Meadow on the Thorney Leys Road. The main footpath that runs in front of Burwell Meadow is in terrible condition. The footpath that runs all the way down to the B&Q light and then alongside Ducklington Lane up to the crossing lights in front of McDonalds.

My blind neighbour has tried to report this to the local council on the telephone.

My blind neighbour is being hit in the head and arm with branches/bushes overgrowing the pathways or being forced to walk with his head duct down or walk closer to the road to avoid them. This is not fair to my blind neighbour, this is a health and safety issue/hazard and needs to be dealt with urgent please.

My neighbour walks with a walking aid stick as sadly he lost his guide dog well over a year ago now. He was due to have a new guide dog but due to Covid this has been delayed greatly.

The pathways along the front of Burwell Meadow are in terrible condition and along with all the overgrown trees and bushes, this is a great hazard for the elderly, blind and disabled members of our community.

Please could this be sorted out urgently before a member of the community is hurt or injured.

Thank you.
