Over grown brambles and Nettles

Reported in the Obstruction category anonymously at 17:16, Sat 26 October 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council 4 minutes later

Our road has brambles, trees and nettles opposite our homes. The brambles particularly have over grown obstructing the road. When people have friends or family visit and park out side. We have to drive into the brambles in order to pass. Which is scratching and damaging our cars.

  • Colemead is a small cul-de-sac, the trees, brambles and nettles are overgrown and making it impossible to drive pass parked cars without scratching our cars on the brambles. Also delivery vans and the refuse collection lorries are finding it impossible . There is also a lot of litter in the bushes. Desperately needs tidying.

  • If people want to reverse into their drives, they have to come as close to these as possible in order to get a swing, in doing so scratches your vehicle. The clue here is that the lamppost, the bushes need to stop behind it not 2-3 feet infront of it.
