Overgrown unattended trees and bushes

The whole area for some reason does not appear to be on the Council/Contractors pruning schedule. The Sycamores which have self set are now at an height of close to 3 metres. Assuming a growth rate of 1 metre per year that makes it 3 years since even pruned. The rest of the growth in the bushes can also seen to be well over 8ft in places and is now spreading across the footpath. Amongst this growth are sharp bramble shoots at just the right height to catch passing children in the eye. A secondary result of the growth is that the carpark adjacent to the area cannot be now seen by passing cars resulting in a perfect place for 'County Line' dealers or clients to hide in plain site. Furthermore over the last 12 months 3 motor vehicles have been abandoned here effectively out of sight.
