Wentworth way

Reported via mobile in the Tree/hedge restricting available highway category anonymously at 11:42, Wednesday 23 August 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 468866.

Home owner has left the hedge to over grow and restrict access for disabled and restricted mobility to use the pathway. The pathways are around 160cm around the estate, but are just over 50cm at the narrowed part not allowing wheelchair users to pass without going on to uneven grass verge. The home owner has trimmed the hedge recently so you can see the street sign.
