Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2307165.

This hedge is not cut by the landowner, it was reported last year and not dealt with, another neighbour had to pay to have it trimmed. There have been issues on this track such as an ambulance was unable to get to our home in an emergency, my wife almost died. The other neighbours now keep the track clear from their bushes or trees, The owner of the land this hedge is on does not live on the land. The hedge is now causing an obstruction to my car, and some delivery vehicles will not come up the track. I am a paraplegic, so vehicular access for myself and delivery vehicles is paramount. A neighbour has likghtly trimmed some of the hedge to allow their small car access, but ut relly needs fully cut back to the edge of the track, and along its entire length. It is the hedge on the right of the track going up. The issue has been present for several years and the hedge gets wider each year.
