Overhanging hedge at 17 shaftesbury road.

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category by sandra stainer at 20:12, Friday 23 July 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2886739.

It is impossible to get down the pavement due to the overgrown hedge.It has been like it for many months.As this property is not owner occupied I see it as the councils responisbility to make sure that the highway is not blocked by greedy landlords refusing to pay for any gardening services. This is not the only front garden, in what is becomming a ghetto,to be in this state. It needs to be sorted out.This USED to be a nice place to live. I do not feel that driving away the council paying residents from this area is doing the councils coffers any favours at all.
