The hedge outside 72 Bedminster Road is growing out into the pavement which makes it really narrow around the pedestrian crossing.

    Yet again! Another summer and this hedge has been allowed to grow dangerously large blocking the path! How many years do we need to complain before some real action is taken on the owners of this property! NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

    Photos taken July 3rd. It is so irritating to have to report this several times a year.

    Like previous posters I am sick of having to report this each year. Yet again the road is blocked. If this is not resolved by the end of July then I will do one of two things: 1) cut the hedge down at the base with a chainsaw. 2) burn it down.

    Even when trimmed back this hedge still obstructs the pavement and is CLEARLY beyond the property boundary. Property owner : get this fixed for good. Council : get this fixed or the locals will take it into their own hands.

    Sorry for being so angry but year upon year this happens and we have to go through this ridiculously slow process to get a result.

    Please can you assist or advise what is required to make this pavement pram/pushchair/wheel chair/disable friendly.

    Currently I am having to go out onto the road with my daughter in her pram.

    Bedminster Road is a busy road at the quietest of times.

    The house number i believe is 72 bedminster Road, According to the maps. However there is a side house which may confuse the location.

    Please can this be raised and resolved ASAP. As we should not be risking our families by walking on the main busy road due to a neglected hedge.
