Overhanging trees are forcing me to walk in the road. I am only 6ft tall, my wife at 5ft3 has issues in some places. It’s been allowed to grow and public not considered. The issue is as you turn down the meadows off the Deanshanger road.
Thank you for reporting a fault on the highway. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.

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.
