On Ballinger Road down towards Frith Hill the vegetation is so overgrown on the pavement it makes it very unsafe for pedestrians

Reported in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 16:10, Wed 30 September 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Very overgrown hedge and ground level vegetation making over the pavement leading out of the village of South Heath, but particularly after Weights and Measures. This has been flagged up to the council MANY times yet it still a problem and a danger for pedestrians. Vehicles nearly clip people as they walk because the pavement is narrow. This is a popular walking route for many school children from the village into Great Missenden and it is dangerous. No excuses not to sort this out as reports dating back from 27th May, 6th June, 18th July refer to this problem.
