Decaying plants on edge of road

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.
Still over grown, nothing been done.

Still open, via questionnaire
A road sweeper has been down Cooper Lane, which does clean some of the edge, but doesn't sort out the actual decaying plants on the road edge. Another foot of Lane could be gained if it was done manually, and it takes less than one man an hour to do.
The decaying plants and earth will hold water, which will eventually break down the tarmac that it is sitting on, which will cost more to repair than a man for an hour once a year to clear the plants and mud.
