  • I totally agree with the previous comment. The last time this happened it took the council a full 18 months to get the property owner to trim back the hedges. Even then, instead doing a full cut back, the foliage was only partially tackled. Perhaps the property owner(s) could do it properly this time, to avoid the short lived reprieve we experienced last year. I note that since the original report, the overgrown foliage has got even worse...so users now run the gauntlet of cycling/walking into the overhanging hedges on one side or the mid level stinging nettles on the other. The property owners at #17 but MOSTLY #16 Lanes End need to be aware of their obligation to keep their foliage under control...and if they can't, the council should step in & pass on the costs to undertake the works themselves.
