Footpath becoming overgrown

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 22:10, Sun 16 May 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 5 months, 1 day, 17 hours, 52 minutes later. Council ref: 2730029.

The footpath between Bailbrook Lane and Swainswick Lane is becoming overgrown, as happens every spring. It is not yet unusable, but will be before too long. When it gets cleared, please make sure to do the whole path, and not leave the top section, as has happened in the past, which makes the whole exercise slightly pointless.

  • Some bits of the path have been tidied, others left to become very overgrown indeed, in particular the top section, which seems to be regularly missed, to the detriment of those who are trying to make use of it. Would it be possible to clear the undergrowth along the whole path?
