Overhanging hedge

Reported via desktop in the Highways Obstructions category by Jack Reay at 10:00, Saturday 22 May 2021

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

The hedge of no 3 Church Crescent overhangs the pavement by a considerable amount, in excess of 400mm. This is a bush with sharp thorns which can cause damage to skin and clothing. The pavement at this point is narrow, and the protrusion of the hedge over the pavement prevents two pedestrians passing each other without one of them walking in the road. This is on a busy bus route, close to a blind corner. I have reported this problem several times before, but it has never been properly addressed. The hedge has had a minor trim, but really needs to be severely cut back. IT IS DANGEROUS!
