Severe overgrowth along Grays Park Road

Reported via desktop in the Weed problem on the highway category anonymously at 18:38, Wednesday 31 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4616672.

All along Grays Park Road, the overgrowth of the grass verges and along the left hand side of the footpath is terrible. It is riddled with stinging nettles which makes it difficult to walk and with a pram, the footpath is almost inaccessible. A person with mobility difficulties will certainly not be able to take a walk along here, it is so overgrown. One cannot pass another while walking along the footpath due to the overgrowth on the verges and all along the side fences and panels. PLEASE SORT THIS OUT so that we can enjoy our village in this lovely weather rather than have to risk our lives by walking in the road!
