Overgrown Hedge - Footpath Blocked

Reported via desktop in the Hedges category anonymously at 10:05, Sun 20 June 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 358052.

The hedge at 22a Grange Street, Clifton is obstructing the footpath, pedestrians are forced to walk in the road. This is a hawthorn hedge and there is a danger that the branches could cause injury as all are at eye level. Disabled and pushchairs cannot use the path.

This has been an issue for the last 3 months and occurs every year.
