Over hanging thorn bushes and trees

Reported in the Overhanging Trees category anonymously at 11:44, Tuesday 4 August 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2230095.

On the corner of 33 Ellwood Avenue Stanground, Peterborough, PE2 8LX, the bushes and trees from this property are over hanging onto the path way next to the road. This is making it difficult for people to walk past, push prams or young children on scooters or bikes to stay on this path without being hit by the over hanging bushes/brambles/trees, which mean they have to go onto the road. These bushes are part of the above property and also hang over the neighbours property onto their drive way which must cause an obstruction out of their driveway. The issue has been there for quite a while now and does not look like it will be addressed as the garden is over grown also.
