46 The Drive - All boundary bushes and brambles growing over, blocking the path. The brambles have injured people and pedestrians have to walk in the mud or often in the road as cars are parked on the verge blocking the whole area. Very dangerous as on a blind bend. Has been like it for some time now (2years or more) and just gets worse.

  • They still haven't cut the vegetation back. The brambles cause injuries. Usually there are cars parked on the grass verge forcing pedestrians onto the road. Who should this be reported to?
