Dangerously over grown hedge too close to the road

Reported in the Hedges / Trees on road or verge category anonymously at 11:52, Wed 20 May 2020

Sent to Warwickshire County Council less than a minute later

The hedge is dangerously over grown 150m all the way down the road and too close to the road in parts and is blocking my visibility splay and it’s also dangerous for my Children to cross the road, the hedge is never maintained properly and I fear for the safety of my family, my neighbours also agree with me something needs to be sorted ASAP. I would prefer for the whole hedge to be removed completely and a stock fence to replace it.

  • I live at 433 Higham Lane, as per the previous report already listed, I wish to also highlight that this hedge is indeed dangerous to my family and I when exiting our drive way either in an vehicle or whilst on foot.

    The hedge completely blocks the view south down Higham Lane towards Nuneaton. When traffic travels north towards my address, the traffic travelling is completely obscured due to the hedging and the bend in the road. This hedge coupled with the temporary access to the new housing estate opposite, makes it a very dangerous place for foot and vehicle traffic leaving my address.

    I would suggest that the best option to solve this problem long term would be to remove the hedge to stop it constantly becoming overgrown and replace it with an appropriate fence.

    Many thanks
