Overgrowing hedgerow/foilage situated onto and into Villa Road as the road bends prevents vehicles negotiating the road correctly and thereby 'cut the corner' to avoid damage to them.

This hedgeway/foilage area is in the public domain and is part of the greensward which has a a public footpath to Tollgate. Negotiating of the road correctly by the hedgeway in a vehicle is impossible to do without hitting it. Most drivers 'cut the corner' to avoid their vehicles colliding with the hedgerow.and must straddle the middle of the road. On a bend this cannot be safe. The hedgeway needs cutting back around two feet at least.
