Dangerous overhanging metal fence and hedge

Reported via iOS in the Overhanging tree, hedge or shrub category anonymously at 13:31, Wednesday 14 February 2024

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5576266.

This blockage of the pavement was caused at 5 Brook Road when a new garage was built very close to the pavement early last year (2023). The fence and hedge are now leaning out over the pavement. This is a busy road with many pedestrians. It is necessary to step out into the busy road to get around the obstacle which presents itself at head height.
