Four trees overhanging from grass verge.

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 10:18, Wed 31 May 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4614033.

Outside No13 North End there are four very large trees on the verge ( we were only able to pick one on the map). They are not just hanging over No13 but also brushing the front of the house, the windows, the guttering and the roof tiles. There is also the fact that the front of the house is in permanent darkness.This is a grade two listed property and whoever is responsible it need sorting out quickly. No luck so far when it comes to NNCC, please advise best course of action. Thankyou.

  • The trees are now so overgrown, they are touching the brickwork, gutters and roof. If there is anything you can do help rectify this problem we would be grateful. We have not been contacted by anyone about this issue. Thank you.

  • The trees are still causing problems - the branches overhang our roof and gutters. We would be grateful if these trees could be cut back as soon as possible. Similar trees further up the road have been purloined. Thank tou
