The pavement is overgrown by hedge and plants and leaving a narrow path to walk along. This happens every year and we end up walking in the road.

  • Thank you for your report. I have handed a 7 day notice to the residents or owners of 18 Finmore Road, Botley to cut back their hedge, obstructing the footway. He said that he had cut it back a bit, that he was aware of our request to cut back the rest, but he had health problems which is why he hadn't.
