Overgrown thorn bushes around Mill House, causing obstruction on surrounding pavements front and back.

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Surrounding Mill House on Blenheim street and Warwick Road, is sharp thorn bushes that are overgrown all the way around. As you walk down the pavement front and back, you get caught on sharp thorns that stab you. It would be horrendous if a wheelchair user went past because it is head height for these users. Children in pushchairs will also get caught. At night, you can't see these thorns, making it worse. These shrubs need cutting back behind their metal fencing. At the bottom of Blenheim Street near a small car parking area and community notice board, is also over grown with shrubs and you can't walk on the pavement, you have to walk into the road. Please can the Blenheim Street/Seymour Road/Warwick Road area have the shrubs and thorn brambles cut back please, so we can walk on the pavements.

  • Hiya, I'm still chasing the problem with overgrown bushes, with sharp prickles on them. I try to use these pavements regularly as I need the Charlotte Keel health centre, but i am forced to use the road and chance not being hit by the traffic, both ways using this small road. They are very dangerous, I have more photos, but only 3 can be uploaded. The whole of this building, front and back need to be cut back. The main road is the Lower Ashley Road section.
