Hedge and grass verg encroaching on pavement forcing pedestrians to walk on edge of pavement.

Reported via mobile in the Hedge/Tree Maintenance category anonymously at 22:29, Tuesday 26 July 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3709448.

This hedge has not been cut back far enough for years and become too thick, a trim is not enough. This road is in a 30mph area but the vast number of vehicles exceed the limit here. There is a blind bend here and vehicles take a racing line around it, may cross the white line next to the pavement. The hedge is so wide that it is impossible to pass another pedestrian without stepping onto the road and a nightmare when two pushchairs or wheelchairs approach each other.

  • Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.

    Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.

    We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.

    During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.

    Thank you for your patience.
