Numerous hedges encroaching over footpaths

A number of properties are allowing their hedges to grow over their boundary and well over public footpaths, some of these hedges include briars, brambles, self sown trees etc. In worst cases hedges encroach by at least 1m. This causes significant inconvenience and danger, particularly to elderly/infirm people (who need to have someone to hold onto while walking) and those with pushchairs and young children. The worst roads are Trent, Tyne, Welland Way and Brooke Road. Brooke Road is particularly dangerous due to high traffic volumes and narrow paths. This has been a problem for several years but seems to be getting worse.
