The hedge along the footpath outside Dropmore Infant School

Reported via mobile in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 09:22, Thu 28 September 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5039849.

This hedge, along Wooburn Common Road, just outside Dropmore Infant School, is hugely overgrown, making the footpath impassible without going into the road. It was first reported to the council in May 2022 and it has not been cut since then. Please can you cut it back as a priority, there is precious little space to park where you can walk your children to school along a footpath by this school. Having a massively overgrown hedge obstructing a significant chunk of this, forcing parents and children into the busy road is so dangerous. This hedge is not the schools responsibility, that was determined in May 2022. It is the councils responsibility to sort so please can you cut it.
