Nettles encroaching on footpath

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown vegetation in Council parks and green spaces category anonymously at 09:17, Thursday 10 June 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 1 day, 6 hours, 8 minutes later. Council ref: 2781597.

Nettles and other vegetation are encroaching on the footpath and are reducing it to below a safe width for Covid passing. I assume that the entire path and verge belong to the council
