Garden hedge overgrown

Reported in the Hedges / trees on rights of way category anonymously at 14:53, Sun 6 September 2020

Sent to Warwickshire County Council less than a minute later

This is the view of the footpath outside number 31 Rouncil Lane, taken from the entry to Gypsy lane. As you can see the hedge has overgrown most of the footpath. I have reported this in the past but nothing was ever done to put it right. The people living at number 31 are in their 90's so unable to do anything about the hedge. In fact I think you will find that the hedge is actually on land belonging to the council even though it looks like it's part of the garden. I can take more pictures if needed,.

  • One month later and it's still the same, nothing's been done. This is right next to a busy junction with a high volume of traffic, safety concerns! There's barley enough room for one pedestrian to walk on, the path was originally two persons width.
