16 Wilshere Road Biggleswade

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 11:58, Tuesday 30 January 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 400944.

To come out of the junction of Beech Avenue onto Wilshere Road you now have to edge out into the road to see if there are any vehicles coming which is becoming a major hazard and also if walking along the path you cannot see if anyone is coming around the corner. This problem has been getting worse over the last couple of years and although they have been told to cut the conifers back they are not cut back enough and still grow over the path. The street light and bus stop are also blocked by the conifers along the side of the property
