The pavement is severely obstructed by an overgrown hedge of spiky growth, making progress for even one pedestrian so unpleasant that stepping into the road is the safest option.

  • No action has been taken to remove any of the overhanging foliage which still severely obstructs the pavement.

    In addition, after the recent very heavy rains in trying to walk past the obstruction while remaining safely on the pavement, you became soaked through.

    This situation will only become worse and more dangerous during the autumn and winter months. The obstruction must be removed.
