Hedge overgrown on public footway
Reported via desktop in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 11:39, Saturday 10 June 2023
Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 2 days, 4 hours, 38 minutes later. Council ref: 4654492.
The hedge at this location has not been cut back regularly or properly maintained through the years. This blocks the visibility splays at the junction with Broadway cul-de-sac and leaves very little space for pedestrians to walk along the footway between the hedge and the on-street parking spaces. The hedge needs to be cut to the back of the footway to avoid people (especially elderly residents) walking dangerously on the carriageway with no clear visibility.
We've passed this report to another team in the council. They will carry out any further work needed. Sometimes it can take a little longer as a result.
We'll update this report once we've decide what action to take.
Category changed from ‘Verge cutting residential areas’ to ‘Overhanging Vegetation’
