Overgrown weed and branches

Reported via mobile in the Growth at the bottom of trees/regrowth category by Sajid Hussain at 13:59, Tuesday 2 March 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2582177.

Hi, The land at the back of our garden is council land, it is a river bank which is being cleaned by the council the last couple of days. I had asked the workers to remove all these bushes and hedges but they have refused. I have cleared as much as I can from the top but cannot gain access to the rest which you can see in the images. All the surrounding houses have had theirs cleared but the overgrown weed and branches has been left on our side. I would appreciate it if you could tackle this. I do not have the equipment nor the skill to tackle this myself, and being that it is council land I feel this should be done by yourselves. If you could kindly arrange for this to be cleared out I'd greatly appreciate it. If you could call me or email me to advise of when they can come out please on the following 07956 364722 and regards
