Overgrown grass area

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 14:52, Tue 14 May 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1629603.

The grass area in front of the flats and houses at the beginning of Thistle Drive has been left and become overgrown and an eye sore. It has been maintained previously and has never been left to get to this stage. I would appreciate if this could be investigated, many thanks.

  • This problem has yet to be resolved. I can see that the original complaint was made 14th May, yet nothing has been done to tidy this area up. The grass and surrounding shrubs and trees continue to grow out of control and really are an eyesore. Please can something be done about this?
