Hedge encroachment to footpath on blind bend.

Reported via desktop in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 20:53, Tuesday 21 September 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Hedge has been allowed to overgrow and now takes up circa 40-50% of the footpath even when it’s recently clipped. You can see this clearly on the Google maps satellite image of number 4 monument lane. It is now not possible for a pushchair and child to walk side by side. Trimming is not enough. Perimeter needs to restored to original width of footpath - over half a metre of excess growth. Resident car parking on the opposite side of this part of the road, which on a bend, makes it a dangerous road safety situation, especially for the more vulnerable. Double decker buses use this road frequently, there is also quite a bit of traffic travelling in excess of 30mph.
