Hedge overhanging pavement

Reported in the Trees category by Jack Reay at 18:15, Fri 12 August 2016

Sent to Hackney Council 4 minutes later

The hedge in the garden of no3 Church Crescent overhangs the pavement by a considerable amount. The hedge has lots of sharp thorns, many at face level. The pavement is very narrow at this point, and is on a bus route, with car parking on the other side of the road, making this area potentially very dangerous, as pedestrians have to walk on the edge of the pavement in order to avoid the hedge.

  • The hedge is overhanging more than ever. It is getting close to the road, making it VERY dangerous for pedestrians who have to swerve around it. The hedge has sharp thorns at face height.

  • The hedge has now been trimmed, but still overhangs the pavement by 2 feet. This is a narrow pavement on a route used by 2 buses. To pass this hedge, pedestrians have to walk extremely close to the pavement edge. In my opinion the hedge should be trimmed back so that it is level with the garden wall, which, interestingly, on the internal side, it is.

  • The hedge (obviously) continues to grow, and reduces the amount of room for pedestrians to safely walk by.

  • Someone has snapped off the most dangerous (ie face height) branches, but it still overhangs the pavement, and, as it grows, the branches get longer and lower.
