Obstruction of Highway / Footpath

Reported via mobile in the Trees or shrubs causing obstruction of highway category anonymously at 09:10, Wednesday 22 June 2022

Sent to Hounslow Highways less than a minute later

The councils action on case no. 14338329 of simply ‘pushing it back’ has not resolved the issue. The overgrowing tree/branch/shrub should have been cut down, then pushed back in.

It has now blown (or been pushed) back out and obstructing the footpath / highway again.

Note that the brick pillar of 86 in exactly the same place is also leaning forward toward the public highway and looks like it’s about to topple. This could cause a serious legal case if it falls on a pedestrian/property or public highway.

Notes from previous case.

‘Branch of Tree/weed/shrub is growing out from 86, toward road & obstructing the public footpath from within private property. This has been here for two plus months, is a regular occurrence as never maintained by owner. Instead just allowed to grow wild onto public highway.’
