Overgrown footpath behind kingsfield- concerns for safety as trees are encroaching

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 13:36, Tuesday 2 March 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2582122.

As requested I am relogging - 2362660.

The area in question has had little to no maintenance for +2years and is badly overgrown. The footpath and the properties abutting are finding vegetation hard to manage and there are now concerns for the size + length of the branches growing as they are dangerously overhanging. Please action maintenance as soon as possible. This enquiry was recently marked as fixed by another department (although it isn't resolved) and it was advised that I relog this issue under this category.
