Massively over grown bushes which cause issues for pedestrians, especially when cars parked on pavement

Reported in the Obstruction category anonymously at 18:46, Wed 29 January 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council 4 minutes later

The shrub/bushes/tree have been over grown for over 2 years, and not surprisingly getting worse. They cause obstruction for pedestrians and for those with prams its even worse. When the cars are parked on the curb its making the gap to walk through even smaller and you have to crouch to not be fit in the face with the branches.

  • Hi this is still a problem and makes social distancing for Coronavirus impossible when walking on that side of the street as a lot of people do when going to the nearby supermarkets.

  • This is still a major problem for path users - and now with social distancing expected/required, it is even more of a problem. I see this has been an issue for months - why are the Council not dealing with it ? It's a relatively simple matter of demanding that the property owner(s) concerned cut back their hedges that are overhanging the highway (under the Highways Act 1980)
