Overgrown hedge

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 19:08, Tue 12 December 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5313252.

This hedge is now so overgrown that it is at least halfway across the pathway and long branches hit you in the face, particularly at night when you cannot see them. This has been ongoing for several months and is now proving to be dangerous

  • This hedge has not been touched since I reported it in December, and of course is growing rapidly. If it is not dealt with soon the excuse will that it is nesting time
