Council owned wall with overgrown bushes

Reported in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 09:53, Sunday 19 July 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2206622.

The wall itself and bushes overgrowing along it are council owned. It has been cut back in the past after having been reported. It is obstructing the entrance of my garage and have of late and in the past attracting the wrong sort of attention. It was pointed out to me by local residents that a homeless person has been seen sleeping within my garage entrance and this would not be so easliy invited if the bushes where an obstruction from the main road. The entrance to the private road now has a new barrier fitted to stop criminal/antisocial behaviour and this has worked. This barrier was actioned and paid for by the local residents and when this was carried out half of the bushes along the wall was cut right back down. In light of what's going on and regular maintenance time the other side of the overgrown bushes needs to reflect the other side of it and be cut right back and down to the floor. This would stop rubbish also being thrown in the bushes and it being used to flytip. In the past needles has been found around the bushes also which is also close to the community centre where a lot of youngsters play

My request would be that the overgrown bushes be cut right down to ground level.
