Overgrown thorny shrubs blocking busy footpath at Roxburgh Croft Play Area

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 5 minutes later

The footpath by the Roxburgh Croft play area, between Kelvin Road and Roxburgh Croft is completely overgrown (including with brambles across the path at face height), to the extent that pedestrians approaching from different directions finding it difficult to pass without one almost stepping into brambles on the side or getting poked in the face by branches

This footpath is a very busy thoroughfare (especially in the morning), as it serves Telford Infant and Junior Schools. Parents walk their children to school; other people walk their dogs. It has become difficult to walk side-by-side with small children, never mind skirting around people walking their dogs or standing in groups, chatting. While the grass gets mowed at regular intervals, these shrubs to the side of the path don't seem to be subject to a regular maintenance schedule.
