  • Footpaths are sprayed twice per year to try to control weed growth. Mowing within Kettering Borough is carried out by Kettering Borough Council Areas of waste ground that are not within the highway are the responsibility of the landowner and again it would be a Borough Council environmental health or planning issue to get action on these from an aesthetic point of view. No highways safety defects were found on inspection.

    State changed to: No further action
