Overgrown footpath

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 353768.

I would like to report the state of the walkway between Halmer Gate and Grange Drive, close to the bus stop. The walkway is used by local residents, including children. The area is over crowded by the the excessive growth of trees, shrubbery etc from most of the properties adjacent to the footpath. In addition the trees which are a part of the area require serious cutting back to provide more light and clean up the area. When wet it impossible to walk through this area without getting very wet from overhanging growth. In addition it has become apparent that a large number of youngsters are using this enclosed area for other forms of recreation. With cars parking in Grange Drive adjacent to the entrance for long periods. Anything you can do to rectify these issues would be appreciated by all the residents. Thank you
