Overgrown tree branches and brambles encroaching onto path,dangerous for children in pushchairs

Reported via iOS in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 10:04, Monday 5 February 2024

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5532950.

These have been allowed to overtake the path for a number of years.The contractor who the parish council pay occasionally cuts back slightly but they need to be taken back to the edge of the path as they are extremely sharp and pose a danger to children in pushchairs as they are so far out on the path.Additionally the contractor just blows all the clippings into the vegetarian rather than removing so over the years this has built up and is reduced width of the path.This report also includes a tree just into Dichens Drive by the the gas box
