  • Since the last post, nothing has been done regarding this overgrown hedge. It still occupies at least half of the width footpath preventing wheelchair and pushchair users access. Please can this hedge be maintained to safely allow pedestrians it’s use asap.

  • Please ask the house owners or the County Council highways to trim back the hedge at Clumber Drive to allow push chair and dog to stay on the pavement. Dangerous accessing the road so close to the corner with a buggy and dog. Can't get back off the road quick enough

  • Works still haven’t been carried out. As you can see this case has been in progress since January. Again a polite request, can this hedge be cut back to its intended boundary to allow pedestrians with pushchairs, wheelchairs and dog walkers the safe use of the pavement? This is a hazard with plenty of near misses and a ticking time bomb that is overlooked again and again.
