This ivy has grown up from the public footpath on the south facing wall. It’s too high and wide and ideally should be completely removed as it’s damaging the host wall which might collapse injuring the public. It is on the footpath that connects New Road Ryhall and the St John’s Churchyard. This a frequently use footpath.

What has happened since this was reported. A person was seen investigating the extent of the ivy months ago but nothing seems to have happened since. It makes use of the footpath unpleasant and oppressive on date mornings and evenings . It needs a drastic prune both vertically and horizontally. Please say what is due to happen.

The hedge has not been trimmed and is increasingly overgrown When will it be reduced in width and height? The problem has NOT been fixed.

The ivy needs cutting back an reduced in height urgently. The churchyard wall adjacent to the entrance to footpath collapsed overnight on 5.3.22 The ivy is so thick that passage is impeded and might well cause the wall to collapse. It should have been cut back ahead of the coming growth season and nesting. It cannot be left for another year!
