Overgrown grass verge

Reported via desktop in the Long Grass NonHazard category anonymously at 21:48, Fri 22 September 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Isle of Wight Council 2 days, 10 hours, 18 minutes later. Council ref: 16250632.

Overgrown grass verge which is covering the yellow lines painted on the road. The hedge actually belongs to the IOW council as this land was compulsorily purchased by the IOW council, probably in the 60s, to install a pedestrian pavement but the pavement was never constructed. Since then it has been assumed that hedgecutting is down to the landowner of the field. Perhaps you could check the records. The previous landowner, now deceased, informed me when I questioned her about cutting the hedge.
