Overhanging tree/plants

Reported via desktop in the Private property category anonymously at 13:25, Fri 19 November 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3132970.

Overhanging tree/plants block the public footpath and make it impossible to cross safely at the roundabout especially with a pram or wheelchair. Having to walk in the road and over the roundabout in order to get past. It has been like this for months now.

  • Overgrown bush is forcing pedestrians to get off the pavement and into the road at risk of being hit by a car. This is specially of great risk for wheelchair and pram users as the pavement is blocked.

  • I note that there is a continuing problem with these bushes at the corner of Robin Hood Lane and Upton Road. I walk past them regularly and no effort has been made to cut them back to allow easier access along the pavement. Is the Council able to deal with these given that the owner of the property appears to have no intention of dealing with this problem?
