Stratfield Mortimer Parish Council (SMPC) are aware of and share the concerns of residents regarding the brambles and other vegetation encroaching onto the pavement down The Street. This has been an ongoing problem for some years and both West Berkshire Council (WBC) and landowners have been approached in the past.
