Excessive overgrowth of vegetation has narrowed pavement width next to busy road. Vegetation also restricting ability of adjacent landowner (Curo) to manage the vegetation on their land behind the fence at the end of the Sheridan Rd garage forecourt.

Reported in the Overgrown public spaces & parks category anonymously at 10:26, Tuesday 15 September 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 5 hours, 19 minutes later. Council ref: 2295208.

Please inspect pavement on Whiteway Road as the overgrowth of nettles and bramble is forcing pedestrians to walk very close to the kerb next to a road where vehicles travel at high speeds. I work for Curo, owner of the garage forecourt on the adjoining Sheridan Road, and we would be pleased if you would cut back the vegetation on your land so that we can access our land to manage the vegetation.
