Overgrown shrubbery blocking footpath

Reported via desktop in the Trees (along Public Rights of Way) category anonymously at 13:52, Tuesday 7 September 2021

Sent to Hertfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There is a 150m -200m stretch of 'route to school' footpath where bushes, trees and brambles have encroached, eaten into and overhand the footpath by 3+ foot. From the tree at the end of the bridleway all the way round the bed behind Cherwell Drive. They were trimmed back on March 29th [after I resported last time] but these need TAKING RIGHT BACK TO THE BOUNDARY LINE to ensure people are able to pass each other on a route to school and inbetween 2 well used bus stops without injury from brambles and having to push prams on the muddy often dog poo riiden grass!
