Hedging Your Bets
Doesn't this hedge look great? It seems likely the hedges in Goodwood South are growing more quickly than anything else at the moment and are the cause for concern for many residents. In my opinion a footpath should allow 2 people to walk side by side or for a double pusher or wheelchair. I pushed a double pusher for a couple of years when my boys were little and knew where all the hazards were. I certainly did't feel safe having to go onto the road just to get to where I wanted to be. Many hedges are so overgrown that they obstruct about 400mm of footpath, every time they are trimmed they creep a little further onto the footpath. From time to time Council needs to remind the owners of the offending hedges to trim back harder so they once again sit level with the true fence line.
