Overgrown Foliage - dangerous for pedestrians

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 12:17, Sat 21 November 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2398566.

The hedgerow is obscuring the pavement. There is at least half of the width of the pavement completely unusable due to the amount of hedge, brambles, nettles, mud and rubbish blocking the path. I walk up the pavement to take my child to school it very dangerous. There are some places of the path where it is completely overgrown and you can not walk past, let alone get a pushchair past and we have to step out into the main road. Please get this problem sorted within a week. It has been repeatedly reported since September, I hope this new report will be actioned.

New report 21/11/2020 - please fix before 30/11/2020
