See ref 5074652 October 2023 hedge between 144 and Zebra crossingMoreton Road

Reported via desktop in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 20:23, Thursday 11 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5841148.

The hedge is not maintained (at rear of Highland Mews properties) reported in October 2023 ref 5074652. Reply was that it would be added to works, but not done. This unkempt area has recently attracted garden waste fly-tipping which has covered our water meter in the verge.
