Overgrown bushes, untidiness, litter

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

The council land outside my property is very overgrown, which is impacting the path and also the look of the street. As well at this it is full of rubbish and dog mess where people have thought it’s okay to dump rubbish due to the untidiness. As well as this the trees are blocking sunlight to my house, creating a lot of mess and damp slippery patches from water and rotting leaves. The branches are touching telephone and internet lines. It would be beneficial if the whole area was removed and replaced with turf like elsewhere in the street and the trees removed or heavily felled.
