  • There has been some minor trimming 1m around the lamp posts. The rest of the bushes are untrimmed and still shading the footway.

  • As my previous comment, shrubs are overshadowing the footway blocking the effect of the lamps. ( As at Wednesday 1st November when last seen)

  • Some trimming has taken place around the lamp posts to some effect but there are still overhanging shrubs causing shading and obstruction to the footpath. Observed on Thursday 7th December.
