Vegetation making it hard to use pavement

Sent to West Sussex County Council less than a minute later
The pavement on the stretch of North St, north of the railway station roundabout, has a lot of vegetation encroaching on to it. This is now a very busy piece of pavement, in use all day, becuase of people going to and from the new Lidl store nearby.
It is IMPOSSIBLE for two-way foot traffic to use this pavement. There is no pavement on the other side of the road. Pedestrians are being forced into the road and are being put at risk by drivers as a result.
Please can the vegetation be cut back so the full width of the pavement/footway is available.?
Council representative called me and advised
A) not their problem b) not sure who the landowner is (It's Network Rail, has been railway land for decades) c) not sure anything can be done short-term but will try and see if it could be cut back when they do the foliage on the other side of the road.
Presumably motor traffic is more important than the two legged kind.
