  • The property I have previously reported with overgrown vegetation blocking half of the pavement, is 19 Chester Road, at the junction of Ridgeway East. I have provided more photos. The problem is obviously now getting worse as the bushes and trees and plants from the garden are now growing! They are causing a hazard to pedestrians and need to be cut back!

  • 7 June 2021 I have reported the overgrown bushes from 19 Chester Road on 2 previous occasions. And it would appear that nothing has happened with regard to rectifying the problem, as it is becoming worse. I can no longer walk past the property alongside my dog, we have to walk in single file. As previously stated, this could cause a serious problem, and even harm, to a partially sighted or blind person

  • I have reported this issue 3 or 4 times in the last few months. Nothing seems to have been done about contacting the residents to resolve the issue, which is continuing to worsen.

  • Althoughi have reported the overgrown bushes from the garden of 19 Ridgeway East 3 times over the past few months, still nothing has been done about them. The space to walk along the pavement is becoming smaller on a weekly basis. The homeowner needs to be contacted and made to remove the obstruction which could be harmful for a blind or partially sighted person
