Overgrown Thorny HEDGE AT 1 Glynswood bordering Greenhill

Reported via desktop in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 23:25, Monday 4 July 2022

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later

Dear Sir/Madam

Encroachment of Thorny Hedge bordering Greenhill outside the fence of House No 1 Glynswood HP13 5QL

I write to ask that the pavement be fully/entirely reclaimed (the boundaries) if only for the safety of pedestrians. The nature of this thorny overgrown hedge should also be considered.

Please note the following - 1. The traffic up and down Greenhill is at times a) moving at a speed and b) very busy 2. The flow of traffic emerging from Coningsby Road addressing traffic moving in either direction on Greenhill 3. The traffic emerging from Glynswood 4. The continuous car park along Greenhill - provides no option for safety to get from No 1 Glynswood to No 2 Glynswood - I am mindful as I move on foot (ALWAYS) supported by another person. I am not a car owner.

Consider - 1. A pedestrian required to be supported by another pedestrian 2. A mother with a push chair and a toddler in tow 3. All others who would require the ENTIRE PAVEMENT as designed/constructed 4. On occasion pedestrians are inclined to step onto the road in order to give way at this particular juncture. NB: Unfortunately, there is no safe option to cross to the other side to get to house No 2 walking from Hughenden Road.

Thank you for your attention.

Yours faithfully

Waveney Munroe
