Overgrown hedge

The hedge that runs beside the footpath on the Hemsby Road in Martham is so overgrown, instead of there being a four foot path it is now only a foot wide in places. This makes it dangerous expecially when walking home in the dark as there are no street lights and often get wacked in the face from stray 6 ft long branches, and if it's rained or very dewy you end up wet through yet the time you get to the end. Who is responsible for cutting this hedge the parish or County council? I would appreciate it being cut before the really wet weather and dark nights set in.
