Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4548105.

Footpath overgrown with stinging nettles, brambles and very tall grass. Every year it is a problem and generally cut back once! Please could you clarify if local residents can cut this back and also advise who the owner of the land is, prev owner at 1 hunter rise have sold this strip of land in last few months, so we do not know who to approach to advise of its overgrown state.
