Overgrown fence causing Serious obstruction

Reported in the Obstruction category anonymously at 16:33, Tue 1 October 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council 2 minutes later

Each year the fence adjoining the Trym valley is covered with Russian vine the worst section being opposite Dinglewood Close and up to and beyond the no 3 bus stop. Each year I persoally have cut back the vine on both sides with my hedge trimmers taking about 3 days but frankly my age is preventing me continuing. In any case it should be the responsibility of the Park Dept. I do know that when approached they object saying the land is in private ownership. I know, as I have a dossier on the subject going back to the 60s. Whilst the Trym Valley side of the fence may present a case, the pavement side is the responsibility of Council as it is blocking the pavement and the weight of the vine has, in the past, caused the fence and post to subside. In 2006 I was therefore able to have work done to the grounds of H & S and I urge the Council to cut back the vine to open up the pavement as matter of urgency.
