  • Most of the bushes nearby have now had a trim, however I still can't get a double pushchair past this particular one (it's a struggle with a single as well) as it's still covering the majority of the path. With parking and bins being as they are the other side of the road, I'm forced to walk my 2 babies in the road where visibility is already limited and cars drive too fast for the road.

  • Still no obvious action here. I regularly have to squeeze my child under branches in the pushchair. Please get this sorted, it’s been far too long. Totally unacceptable.

  • Still having to walk in the road carrying half my double pram, hoping traffic spots me in time to stop. There's no where for any type of wheels, especially mobility scooters to cross anywhere close by. Even when you do cross you can't get between bins and cars the other side. This week I struggled through and found under a pile of leaves some dog poo which I had no way of removing from the pram before getting to my car. It'd be lovely to walk more places and save the environment but it's not safe to walk there if you push or ride anything with wheels meant for the pavement.
