No72 Bedminster Road - Front hedge is overgrown and blocking the pavement right next to the pelican crossing

No72 Bedminster Road, Bedminster. Yet again this house is failing to maintain the bushes at the front of the property and it is blocking the footpath. The hedge needs to be cut back by almost a foot, they are clearly blocking land that they should not be. The owner needs to cut this back. I believe he rents it out so I do not see the owner to tell him.

  • This hedge has been neglected again this year. Ever summer they fail to cut the hedge back. It’s now obstructing buggies and wheel chairs again.

  • Same problem as before, the hedge has grown so much it is blocking the pavement, it's right beside a crossing on a busy road, anyone in a wheelchair or with a pram or buggy would struggle to get passed without stepping on to the busy road.

  • This hedge is now a dangerous hazard. You cannot get a pram or child's buggy passed without going into the road. I have seen children put their scooters into the road to avoid it. You cannot walk past it without catching it in your clothing or hair. Every pedestrian is forced to manoeuvre to avoid it. From memory, the owner of this house has trimmed it back once in the last five years and needs to be forced to trim back this hedge every year or remove it. I have had to stop my own daughter taking dangerous action to avoid it. It is only a matter of time before an accident happens.

  • Hi there Council. Original poster here. I raised this just over 2 months ago and there has been no comment from you. Are you waiting for winter for the leaves to drop so there's less of an issue or are you hoping that we all band together to chop or burn the whole bush down? I don't think we are far from the latter. It may well be that you are taking some action...but this is the perfect platform to let us know what's happening, yet we have heard nothing. Please provide an update. Many thanks
