  • The bushes are so overgrown that the footpath is barely wide enough for even one person to walk along. It would be virtually impossible for a wheelchair user or pushchair to safely use the pavement. This is particularly an issue because is is on a bend in the road where cars come around really fast and it is a main path for school children walking to and from Whitchurch Primary school.
