Overgrowing hedge not maintainted by council causing public nuisance.

We have lived in the end house of Glebe Close, Bidford on Avon, since it was built in 1976. We maintain our hedge, alongside Westholme Rd. Our neighbours at no 26 maintain theirs. The hedge to the right of the bollards, in the centre, belongs to the Council and has not been trimmed in all the years we have lived here. It is now badly overgrown + collapsing causing public nuisance and lack of vision when parents cross the road on the way to school with their children. People wrongly assume it is our hedge to maintain and are often complaining to us. We would be VERY grateful if this problem could be inspected and dealt with asap. Mr and Mrs Dewsbury

  • Photos regarding my last eamil. Hedge to right of bollard still not trimmed despite a request previous. (WE were asked to trim our side by the Parish Council as it obstructed the view of the highway.) We do this regularly at personal cost but we are once again receiving complaints from parents regarding the right hand side ~ Council hedge ~ as its massive growth is now obstructing the bend in the road when they cross their children to school.
