Footpath significantly encroached by hedge

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction category anonymously at 13:12, Sat 18 June 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

This length of pavement has been made very narrow due to the hedge line and stinging nettles encroaching onto it with a significant portion of the pavement itself covered in mud and plants. This is a busy path used frequently by parents with prams and children accessing tescos and the reduction in path size pushes people into the busy road. It requires a hedge trim back to the main hedge line and the mud and greenery that covers the path shovelling into the hedgeline. This will increase both the physical footpath back to its original size and allow the edge next to the hedge to actually be walked on. Thank you in advance.
