Overgrown tree/bushes/weeds

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 18:56, Sunday 14 August 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 15 hours, 58 minutes later. Council ref: 3753278.

The tree/bush is so overgrown, the water works struggled to access the mains drain. There is so many weeds, the cats now use this as their toilet and it stinks. Some branches have fallen over cars parked, and worried roots are de-stabilising the wall. Can’t use the path due to weeds and cat poo !
