A third of the footpath is unusable

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category anonymously at 07:51, Sun 30 June 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Hertfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

I reported that a third of the path was inaccessible due to stinging nettles a few weeks ago.(First photo shows stinging nettles. Others how the path still is.)These nettles have since been chopped back but the footpath is still covered in earth and over hanging branches make it difficult to walk on. Children and adults still need to use the cycle path when going to St. Nicholas school which isn't safe. Can this path be cleared properly so it can be fully used.

  • Most of the footpath is not in use due to overhanging branches and mud and nettles over he footpath.Adults and children mostly walk on the cycle path which is dangerous as adults on bikes also use the cycle path.Please sort this out it has been ongoing for a long time.

  • This path still needs to be cleared of leaves ,weeds and over grown branches which mean parents and children constantly use the cycle path.This is dangerous as cyclists also obviously use the cycle path.

  • The path is overgrown and very slippery under foot due to rotting leaves. The over hanging branches also need to be cut back.Photo taken this week uploaded.
