Long length of holly hedges encroaching pavement up to 2 feet to left of Crayside house and Shepheard housing complex

Recently the council acted to force Crayside house to withdraw its illegal wall from the pavement BRILLIANT. The houses to the left of that up to Church Row have huge holly hedges which extend onto the pavement by up to 2 feet and extend clearly beyond their entrance boundaries. Can the council act again to put this right before the pavement is made good outside Crayside ?

Crayside have cut down their holly bushes in favour of a hard boundary, must we really lose more wildlife habitat to reclaim a foot or so of what is already a wide pavement? I have lived here for 30 years and the bushes have always been well maintained. These are not permanent structures so should not be treated the same way as a newly built wall. Hedgerows are invaluable to our local ecosystems and should not be reduced on a whim, especially when they are not currently causing any detriment.
