Path very narrow, bushes need cutting back

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 19:10, Wednesday 8 September 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 13 hours, 11 minutes later. Council ref: 2988718.

It's becoming very dangerous walking my child to nursery at Westfield school as the bushes have over grown over the path alongside very busy main road - also with brambles falling down.

  • Its has been reported to the school that parents are finding it increasingly difficult to walk along the pavement due to over grown hedges. Clothes are being ruined on brambles hanging from the hedge. Please can we ask these to be trimmed back as a matter of urgency and safety of children coming to and from school.
