Thank you for your enquiry. The site has been visited and an inspection has identified that the vegetation is privately owned. A letter has been sent to the owner/occupier requesting that the vegetation is cut back within 30 days. A re-visit will then be undertaken in 30 days to ensure this work has been carried out. If the owner fails to satisfactory complete this work then it will be passed to the Regulations team to start enforcement proceedings

The vegetation is still overgrown, barely enough room for single file walking. The green bush should be cut back to the edge of the pavement. The bush is at least 5ft thick/deep, it need serious trim to reduce the overhang over the pavement. Please review again. Many thanks.
