Overhanging vegetation making pathway narrower causing problems for social distancing

Reported in the Overgrown vegetation in Council parks and green spaces category anonymously at 16:24, Thu 10 September 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2288512.

The slipway between Southlands and High Street, Weston has overgrown bushes making the pathway much narrower causing problems for social distancing when people are walking up or down in different directions. The problem is the length of the pathway to the left hand side of the Moravian church

  • Yes please can you sort this asap as it is a very busy path for the school run to and from and mid day (for reception pick offs and drop offs)

    I believe that it being the state it is its encouraging people not to pick up dog poo. There has now been (that I have seen) 4 BAD trails of poo, and again with less area to walk we are all more likely to step in it and taking it into our schools where the kids will then be sitting on the floors etc.

    Please can you address this asap

  • Very unsafe over hanging thorns and sticks my daughter was caught on the face as she was trying to social distance. This needs looking into urgently!!
