Hedge has been overtaking path for many years and when it has been cut not enough is removes. It is now at a point where the path way on Obelisk Rise and St John's Avenue is being significantly reduced by this. The corner for pedestrians in wheelchairs and pushchairs is extremely difficult to navigate. There is barely any path left at the corner.
