Overgrown hedge blocking pavement

Reported in the Obstruction category anonymously at 20:37, Monday 18 May 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The hedge in front of 27 and 25 Crown Hill is so overgrown that it covers a half of the whole pavement width not allowing pedestrians with buggies or wheelchairs to pass. Owners of those properties usually have their cars parked on the pavement in front of their properties too which then leaves no space for pedestrians at all forcing us to cross to the other side of Crown Hill and then back after the obstruction.

  • The hedges were cut a little bit in June but not enough to free up the pavement. It grew back and the situation is back to as originally reported. Each time when going with bikes we have to cross the road to the other side. My disabled neighbour, who uses mobility scooter, has to do the same as there is just not enough space to pass by parked cars. See photo. The hedges have to be cut back to the edge of the properties in order to allow pedestrians to use the pavement.
