The hedge was tidied up but not cut back! We have a right to be able to use the footpath! This shouldn't be allowed. The whole length of this hedge needs cutting back, all the way round from along St Peter's Road round to Wessex Road. It is particularly bad on the corner.

  • No, the hedge has still not been cut back off the footpath. The footpath is so narrow it is almost unusable.
