Hawthornes Overgrown & Blocking Single Track Road.

The hedge is on a thin sliver between a single track road and a footpath. The trees are also spilling out into the footpath and only one person can go through at a time.

You have to go over the kerb-line to avoid the trees which can scratch your car.

Council ref: ENQ21901444

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • The hawthornes still haven’t been cut back. This limits ability to drive on the correct side of the road and is dangerous on a 90 degree corner particularly with children riding bicycles round the corner.
