The bushes at 134 Lower Road are overgrown and taking over more than half of the pavement

Reported via mobile in the Obstructions on pavements and roads category anonymously at 12:53, Mon 22 November 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3137261.

These bushes have never been trimmed or maintained since new occupancy. One of the branches have hit my 6 year old in his face poking his eye when trying to walk around the corner. He had to move into them moving out of the way of an elderly on a mobility scooter

  • The bushes have been trimmed on the front of the house however they have not been trimmed going around the corner where it is needed most. It is hard walking around the corner from Beltwood Rd as overgrown. This house needs to trim hedges properly not a bodge job just to do enough to be to get by.

  • This is disgraceful. Been well over 4 months and the hedges are no different from pic 1 and 3. Some people have no respect for others or even their own home.

  • Why has this not been acted upon. Does there have to be an accident for action to be taken.
