The hedge by the side of our property 93 Langdon Road was recently partly cut but the remaining uncut branches have grown to the point they are blocking access to the gas and electric meters and the meters readers are refusing to read them. The bush has a lot of thorns in it. Please cut back. My wife reported the issue by phone a number of weeks ago but nothing has happened yet

  • I've got exactly the same problem at number 69 which I advised the Council of some weeks ago - only a third of the prickly bush has been cut - but so far no joy with the contractors coming back out to finish the job.

  • We will come and cut away from the electric and gas meters so that they can be read.
