Overgrown bushes/shrubs

Reported via desktop in the Pavement and Cycle path category anonymously at 15:30, Tuesday 13 July 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 359198.

These have been taken of the alleyway off Sullivan close leading to Elgar Drive which i understand is a public highway. The laurels are way over the pavement, the honey suckle is now growing along the footpath and the overhanging bushes are so heavy you have to duck to go through. The other side ( fir trees) are privately maintained and is no problem.
