Hedge on corner of Great Brockeridge and Stoke Lane (outside 157 Stoke Lane) is so over grown it is causing an obstruction on the pavement - over half the pavement is obscured. this means pedestrians including the elderly, parents with push chairs and Elmlea school students who walk to school have to walk in the road. Please arrange for it to be cut back. It needs cutting back properly as the last 3 years it has been done the top has not been cut. When it rains the hedge is so too heavy it falls over onto the pavement.

    The hedge is becoming more overgrown and causing further obstruction. Pedestrians are having to walk on the road to avoid it. This includes the elderly, mothers with pushchairs and small children. It is an accident waiting to happen. This happens every year. Why is this work not routinely scheduled as this would avoid this problem?
