Back to all reports

I reported which is repeated in brackets after this sentence. Amazingly the hedges and trees have been trimmed EXCEPT THE BRANCHES COVERING THE ROAD SIGN!!! which was the whole point! (Un tended trees and bushes seriously overhanging and completely covering important road sign. Reported in the Hedge problem category by Stuart Ottley at 14:14, Monday 28 September 2020 Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later This area has not been cut back for many months. Some is now threatening to fall into the (very busy) road. An important road sign directing traffic to the town centre is now completely covered and cannot be seen by approaching traffic. I previously reported this problem in October 2019. Despite promises this has not been fixed and gets worse by the day!)

As explained previously tree branches and bushes are overhanging and obscuring an important road sign. I reported this twice and some of the offending branches and bushes have been trimmed except those covering the road sign which was the whole point! Brilliant.
