Decaying plants on edge of road

Reported anonymously at 22:40, Tue 13 February 2018

Could the council please consider clearing the decaying waste of the plants on the wood side that are making Cooper lane ever more narrow to drive down. I don't mean clean edges with a road sweeper, but actual men with shovels that can remove the decaying plants and mud from the road surface. It only needs shovelling up and deposited further up the bank of the lane. I've done the whole lane once in the past and it takes less than an hour to do, with at least 2 feet of extra lane and tarmac regained. If it's not done now, this summers plants will decay at the end of summer, making the lane even more narrow than it already is. Wide vehicles venturing down the lane churn the waste up turning it into mud, I don't expect to drive my car in mud, its a public road.
