Overgrown ivy damaging wall.

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 08:00, Wednesday 6 July 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 9 hours, 44 minutes later. Council ref: 3653106.

This is a council-owned wall with Audley Park Road to its east, and a back lane for houses in Audley Grove to its west. As you will see from the photographs, ivy has become well established along the top of the wall, in places reaching over 2 feet high. The roots are beginning to damage the mortar between the stones, and if the ivy is not removed, the stones will start to become loose and dangerous.
