Pathway running length of road between the two entry points to Primrose Way
Reported via mobile in the Tree/hedge restricting available highway category anonymously at 22:02, Wednesday 21 June 2023
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 462942.
Path is becoming dangerous to use due to overhanging bushes and trees. The pavements have not been cleared back to the edging and the path is quite narrow in places. This is our only path along the lane and is a route to school.
Thanks for letting us know about your issue with a tree/hedge on the highway. We will look into this and let you know what we find within the next 14 days. You can find out more about trees and hedges on our website

We’re going to sort out the issue as part of our next cycle of works. That means we will include this when we next cut the grass or treat the weeds in your area. We cut the grass three times a year in April/May, June/July and September/October. We treat any weeds twice a year between April and October.

The hedgerow and weeds have still not been cut back, and were certainly not done in June or July as per your last post. The path, which runs the length of Sydney Farm Lane, is used as a route to our local primary school and runs alongside an extremely busy access route to the A1. It is not safe. The hedge needs cutting back and lowering in height, the encroaching undergrowth needs cutting back to return the path to its original width.
