Overgrown hedge

Reported via mobile in the Trees or Vegetation category anonymously at 17:07, Sat 8 July 2023

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4764178.

Hedge at no.28 princess avenue oakham hashed the straggley bits trimmed but is still encroaching 2 feet over the public footpath. Oakham Council should get off their arse and check before saying the issue has been fixed.

  • Still not sorted 😕 Council can't be arsed unless it benefits them.

  • Hedge belonging to no.28 princess avenue is still a major problem blocking over half of the path. Just seen a disabled lady on a mobility scooter have to use the grass verge to pass. As a Council you are a disgrace, the paths and potholes in the roads are shameful.
