Footpath needs to widened/vegetation cleared

Reported via desktop in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 09:59, Fri 23 October 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The footpath along Frith Hill from South Heath towards Great Missenden has become overgrown and dangerously narrow in places making it impossible not either walk in the road or hang out over the kerb. This is a walking route used by many including school children. The vegetation needs to cut back and the footpath widened again to ensure it is safe. Perhaps signage should be considered to indicate this is a footpath, or 'flashing' speed signs added to remind road users of their speed and presence of the footpath.
