Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 1886822.

The hedges/trees are sited behind the brick bus shelter just before the crossroads at Bix - Henley Bound. These trees have got higher and higher and now block the light into my home making the room dark The council cut these down and back a few years ago but have never been kept up to. would appreciate these being cut back to fence level and also they are wide and cover much of the footpath behind the bus shelter
