Overgrown laurel hedge

Reported via mobile in the Hedges category anonymously at 09:17, Friday 2 July 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 358678.

I regularly walk along Hitchin Street home and there is a huge laurel hedge which is getting wider and now must be a metre from the wall it starts from. Some residents have trimmed back this opposite their property, one is up for sale, but the majority is very neglected. It has halved the footpath available. Wondering if this is something that council can help with please.? Thanks
