Overgrown bushes and shrubs encroaching into garden

Reported in the Trees and Woodland Maintenance category anonymously at 19:28, Monday 24 August 2020

Sent to Stevenage Borough Council less than a minute later

No maintenance has been done to the alley way causing all the bushes to over grow into the back garden of Peartree Way. I contacted the council who said I was not allowed to cut them as the bushes were not on my property. The bushes are bramble bushes and have lots of thorns. Please can they be removed.

  • You are well within your rights to cut them back, you don't even have to throw back the cuttings, which used t be the law.
