A Laurel Hedge , exceeding more the 2 Metres in Height is obstructing out view , exciting our Driveway, My wife was very Shaken after trying to get out of our drive onto Church Lane, Alderton. The Hedge is situated in the front Garden of a House called Woodlands. First house on the right as you drive down Church Lane, This vehicle that nearly hit my wife's car , was one of these delivery Vans DHL or something similar . This Laurel Hedge is over 2 Metres High and is held in with Chain link fence of similar height. When I put up a fence around my front garden , I was informed by the council that it could not exceed 1 metre in height. This is very dangerous and we have had near misses in the past. The speed limit is 30mph and 10 MPH would be to fast for this single track road, I do hope that someone comes out to access this Dangerous Hazard. You cannot see more than about 20 feet up this road.
