Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 5 minutes later

The path alongside the main Wells road and opposite the Sleep lane junction, is dangerous for pedestrians. There are many overhanging brambles that obstruct the use of the path. Please arrange for the path way to be made usable again. Thank you.

  • Path is still not passable on several sections along Hursley Hill. My Son tried to use the footpath and had to walk on the main A37 in sections towards oncoming vehicles. Path needs to be cleared and bushes cut back as a matter or urgency for public safety.

  • The last time I walked along here, it was just as bad. Brambles hanging down and could easily cause injury particularly to the eyes and face. BANES please confirm when we can expect this to be sorted. Thank you

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • Path along Hursley Hill is still impassable by foot therefore pedestrians need to use A37 towards oncoming traffic. Path needs clearing and brambles cut back.
