Hedge has overgrown making walking dangerous

Reported in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 15:05, Tue 5 May 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I reported this to Amersham Council in January and Steve there said: "As promised I spoke to BCC and an order has been raised for London Road. This means that the vegetation will be cut back, however when I asked about time scales, I am afraid that no completion date was given."

Now, nearly 4 months later nothing has happened - although today the road has been closed for a load of (unnecessary) road works. Whilst the road was closed would have been an ideal time to do it.

Will it ever be done?
