Overgrown weeds along entire stretch of Stamford Road

Reported via desktop in the Weeds category anonymously at 13:24, Wed 31 May 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4615203.

Overgrown weeds in gutters and around traffic islands along the entire stretch of the Stamford Road that are never tended to when grass is cut. Weeds are so overgrown the pavement is impassable and traffic islands serving as crossing points are dangerous under foot when tangled in the weeds. By not de-weeding gutters you are negating their important role. And above all it looks unsightly. The Council takes good care of Manor House Gardens. Why is the same exacting standard not applied to ALL of Kettering? Why does the Council allow our neighbourhoods to look so s**t? The quality of workmanship across Kettering is third-world. The Council is undeserving of the tax residents are paying.
