Spiky holly bush obstructing pavement.

Reported via iOS in the Vegetation blocking road or sign visibility - In a residential area category anonymously at 07:44, Tue 7 June 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3576640.

Can’t open car door properly and people can’t walk past a parked car and have to walk onto the road to get past. Bushes very spiky and sharp.

  • I reported this a few weeks ago. The reply was that the property owner had been requested to deal with it and the issue was closed. Now, a few weeks later there has been no change. On the rare occasions when this hedge is maintained it is left overhanging a significant amount of the pavement and this is always a pinch point for pedestrians at the best of times. Also, further up the road round the bend, the pavement is becoming obstructed by growth from school property.

  • I see this seems to be an ongoing problem. Owner doesn’t seem to maintain the property.

  • Yes the property has a neglected appearance, although it is inhabited, and hedge overgrowth is often a problem for long periods. It has now been trimmed but still extends over the pavement by an unacceptable amount. It is only just possible to pass and it is still necessary to walk in the road at the lamp post. The hedge should be taken right back to the public boundary.
