Vegetation growing out at ground level from 71 Broxbourne

Reported via mobile in the Overhanging Vegetation from private land category anonymously at 21:37, Mon 20 November 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5234967.

Problem occurs in Broxbourne where hedge and fence are falling onto pavement and especially in Knoll Rise where ground level ivy now takes up the width of a whole paving block. When walking as a couple one of you is too near road where cars speed constantly. I would like to walk closer to property away from the edge of road but can’t. Also difficult with grandchildren a buggy and toddler holding on side.

  • The owners have put in effort to improve the problem and have cleared vegetation. However on Knoll Rise the earth from the shrubs is still extending about half a paving block onto LBB pavement as evidenced by the fire hydrant in hedge. The hedge is cut back but once grown will obscure vision to traffic coming up Knoll Rise for anyone driving out of Broxbourne Rd
