Trees/shrubs growing spilling out of garden over pavements

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 16:06, Saturday 20 August 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Maiden Way is a small cul de sac which is often very difficult to enter or leave due to the occupants of 660 Portway using it as car park for vehicle trailers, LGV vehicles, scrap vehicles and many cars parked on the pavement. Walking in and out of the street is now even more precarious due to the overgrowth of trees and shrubs from thier garden blocking the few bits of path they have not already blocked with their vehicles. I have been practising my limbo walk to pass beneath thier tree but sadly my back and knees are no longer up to the the job so I am forced to walk in the road on a blind corner obscured by vehicles. Maybe someone fitter than me could do it as it really is a question of how low can you go? The whole cul de sac is starting to resemble an abandonded village with weeds growing in abundance and people who strangely store scrap cars in their gardens for years. Are council tenants under an obligation to keep the grounds of their property in reaonable condition?
