Overhanging trees and bushes over footpath

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 12:08, Wed 17 November 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 363885.

The footpath between Kingfisher Close and the gate to the Fallowfield park has bushes that reduce the width of the path and overhanging bushes and trees that reduce the headroom forcing people to duck below branches or walk around them on the grass. This is a health and safety matter as it is quite easy to have these branches poke in your face and eyes. Photos are attached. This was previously reported under 363456 and the response was that nothing needed to be done. I would suggest that it is looked at again.
