Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3787400.

Hedge is overgrown and preventing safe access along footpath. This is a busy road and today we had to stay still on path whilst car waited to pull out to go around us and give us sufficient space. Traffic busy in both directions.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. Whilst we appreciate your comments, the location of the vegetation that you have identified is not on the adopted highway. Unfortunately it is therefore the responsibility of the private landowner to maintain and is outside Northamptonshire Highways’ control. Nevertheless, we have written to the landowner requesting that the vegetation is cut back within the next two weeks. We will endeavour to revisit the site following the two weeks’ notice period.

  • Investigation: Completed (Reported to a third party) - We have determined that this is vegetation from a growing from a private property. We will contact the landowner to cut back. These issues can take up to four months to resolve.
