Pavement restricted by hedge

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category by Robert Foster at 12:32, Sun 8 October 2017

Sent to Norfolk County Council 3 minutes later

Overgrown hedge belonging to The Orchards on Bunwell Road obstructing pavement which is contrary to 1980 Highway Act which says pavement must be clear for full width of pavement to 2.3 metres high. We have had a resident come very close to being struck by the mirror of a HGV this week and this matter needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency.

  • Chased NCC as first rejected as not a problem! Complained that street officer that appeared on site needed a pair of glasses if that was his opinion. Chased a 3rd time and finally dealt with today.

    State changed to: Fixed
