Overgrown bushes narrowing the footpath dangerously

Reported in the Hedges / Trees on road or verge category by Cllr Damon Brown (Ward Councillor - NBBC) at 17:37, Mon 19 August 2019

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 3 minutes later

The hedges alongside the footpath at the side of New Road leading from Keresley towards Ash Green are overgrown, especially in the area from the lay-by leading to Pro-Logis Park to the section adjacent to The Haven Care Home. The footpath is used by children going to and from Keresley to attend Ash Green School and is part of a Safer Routes to School. At present the footpath has been narrowed so that people have to walk in the road.The bushes need cutting back and the accumilated vegetation removed so that the footpath is restored to its intended full width.

  • This has not yet been attended to and the footpath is now reduced even further forcing pedestrians to walk in the road on a blind bend. The footpath is part of a Safer Route to School. I require the bushes to be cut back and collected debris removed with the full width of the pavement restored asap please
