Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 3 minutes later. Council ref: 1620309.

Lane adjacent to 469 Bath Rd, Saltford. No. 469 is an empty property. Bushes along most of the length are overgrown, covering in places app. 80% of the pathway. This is a worsening situation as growth is continuing.

  • The overhanging thorn branches are long and the vegetation is dense making this pathway almost unpassable. Many of the thorns are at head height. This is particularly dangerous as the pathway is used by elderly who live in Iford Close. The thorn branches etc are coming out from the rear garden of a property 469 Bath Rd which is empty. (Sign - sold by Eveleighs Estate Agent 0117904900). I urge the Council to take action immediately
