Overgrown hedge obstructing footpath

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 13:27, Saturday 8 June 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later. Council ref: 1652890.

The footpath along Horseponds Road between the two ends of The Hamlet is actually tarmac but over the years has become narrower and narrower because the grass verge has encroached . I have no idea of the original width but at present it is only about 30cm . At this time of year whoever is responsible for the hedge doesn’t keep it cut back making the path even less useable and certainly not accessible to wheelchair / mobility buggies or pushchairs. The same situation applied between The Hamlet and Wyfold Road ( which is incorrectly shown on your map as Reades Lane )where a new housing association development was built and the footpath brought up to a reasonable standard
