Overgrown hedges and planting over pathway

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 4 minutes later

The resident of 59 Steeping Road has allowed his bushes and plants to create a hedge where there is supposed to be a grass verge. This is council owned land and is supposed to create a ‘visual’ road narrowing to slow down cars. He has now also planted bedding plants over the grass and the verge is no longer visible. This means there is also less space for visiting cars to park. Please can you get this matter rectified as soon as possible so that residents can again walk next to the road without having to walk on the road surface. This problem has been getting gradually worse over the last few years, but this summer he has now completely covered the grass, effectively making the ‘path’ invisible.

  • As you can see, the grass path has been completely covered over by hedges and new planting. Originally the grass path was the same width as the tarmac path which can be seen to the left in this photo.

  • This is still an issue...when will it be sorted and the grass verge/pathway reinstated?
