Road running behind Middlebrook Road

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 06:35, Saturday 27 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5904481.

I reported an issue with the pavement along the Road which runs behind the houses in Middlebrook Road last year. The pavement is so overgrown with bushes and weeds that the pavement is no longer usable and cannot be seen through the overgrowth. I was told this would be sorted within a couple of weeks by the local councillor but it never happened. It is no longer safe to park our cars along the pavement side of the road. My daughter came to visit us last week and parked her along side the offending over grow bushes, as she got out of the car, she tripped over these bushes and weeds with her toddler in her arms, both feel to the ground and although no serious injuries both were extremely shaken by the incident. Please please please sort this issue out for the residents of this part of the road, not only is it dangerous, the overgrowth will become worse on the next few months and is a total eyesore and undoubtedly there will be more accidents and next time it could be more serious.
