A COUNCILLOR is still looking for action to be taken to cut back dangerous hedges.

Dave Harris (Lab) has been campaigning for a few weeks to get the overgrown hedgerows cut back along Berechurch Hall Road.

He said: "I have walked this route and the footpath has been narrowed badly by brambles, hedges and weeds that encroach on the safety of pedestrians and cyclists alike.

"Young children walk this area and frequently I am told by residents they are forced to walk next to kerb right by cars."

He raised it with Essex County Council, which said the road did not meet the criteria for works.

Essex Highways has a schedule of works which is based on priority.

At this time, the works are not considered to be of the highest priority, but they will continue to be monitored.
