Over grown hedge taking over footpath

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 16:03, Wed 28 July 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 402290.

This hedge is very over grown an is taking over most of the footpath. It's on a busy road an a blind corner so makes it very dangerous if you meet someone coming the other way.

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because the area is not too bad and Boston Borough Council are scheduled to undertake some work. Our Officer cut back some of the corner growth. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • This is the hedge I was taking about an you can see from my photo the oath is very narrow due to the over grown hedge. I think it's very dangerous as you can't see the on coming traffic an if u happen to be to close to the edge a car will clip you.

  • Still not taken back to the boundary as it should be. This is a kind corner and a cycle path/footpath gets very interesting at times extremely dangerous

  • This area has not been cut back properly for more than 10years and Is long overdue to be taken back to the boundary. This is a hazard that keeps being ignored along with the blocked drains in the same stretch of road. I shall be asking BBC what they are intending to do in this area it fit under my Portfolio as it happens, so I should get an answer quickly on the works that’s will be carried out just in that area.
