The hedge is overgrown and blocking the pavement causing issues for pedestrians, wheelchair users, pushchair users etc. It is also causing issues with greatly reduced visibility for motorists exiting Rochelle Way into Weggs Farm Road which is dangerous at the best of times due to the excessive speed people drive at. This hedge has not been cut for some considerable time and if not dealt with soon will block the whole pavement.
