Nettles and branches overhanging onto footpath

Reported in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 09:20, Tue 15 September 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 3 months, 2 days, 2 hours, 44 minutes later. Council ref: 2295141.

We are unable to safely walk to school outside the bottom gate to Royal High School since there are nettles and bushes poking out at children's eye level - we therefore have to walk on the road which is not safe since the road is so busy at drop off and pick up times
