Overgrown Council shrubs, and ivy at ground level are encroaching on private shared drive.

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown vegetation in Council parks and green spaces category anonymously at 17:40, Thu 15 October 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2342788.

Bushes and ivy on Council land side of shared drive of 41, 43, 45, 45 Burnt House Road is narrower by approximately 0.7 metres. The drive has become too narrow for delivery vans or ambulances to access these houses without scratching vehicles. Please will you arrange for the extra growth to be cut back, so that the boundary with the Council planting, and our drive is restored? We tried self-help by cutting back the lower level growth in the summer, but regrowth has occured. We cannot reach the high level growth.
