Overgrown grass and nettles blocking pavement - Northmead Road

Reported via desktop in the Excessive or dangerous littering category anonymously at 11:24, Thursday 16 June 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 3 hours, 19 minutes later. Council ref: 3600962.

Hello This morning we walked from the steps out of Northmead Close Midsomer Norton to the 171/172 bus stop on the corner of Hayes Park Road. The vegetation has been growing steadily - as it does - but now the pavement is only wide enough for one person. We had to step onto the road to let a mum with a pushchair pass on the way down and while we were waiting at the bus stop a lady came down in a wheelchair so we had to step back onto the grassy slope to let her through (we are 80+ and not very steady !) She commented that the nettles had stung her arm. Your attention would be appreciated by all. Thank you
