Overgrown bushes next to 41 Westbury view

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 18:36, Mon 19 October 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 5 months, 6 days, 15 hours, 49 minutes later. Council ref: 2348313.

Hi there ,

The area next my house in westbury view is completely over grown . It has not only caused damage to my fence but it is now a safety hazard . When experiencing slight wind or rain, branches fall from the trees and either hit the house or damage the fencers . Sadly, my partner was hit by a falling branch last week . My next door and opposite Neighbours both have small children and we are concerned for their safety as we approach the winter months .

I have emailed you before and nothing has been done ( We understand you’re busy) but now that it is causing danger we hope you will take this matter seriously .

I look forward to hearing from you soon .

Best wishes ,

Jemma Woods
