Reported via desktop in the Weed problem on the highway category anonymously at 10:28, Thursday 29 June 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4730278.
The weeds and bramble along this road is severely overgrown to 5ft tall. It covers over the footpath, making it near impossible to go down with buggies or mobility scooters. It's awful going down here on a regular basis as you're forced to go into the busy road with 40 mph cars whizzing past you and at you. You cannot force your way through the weeds.
Please can this be cut as far back as possible, so I can go down this road on my mobility scooter. I use this path regularly.
An officer will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days and arrange to have the issue resolved as soon as possible after that.
