Overgrown footpaths leading to foot bridge

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 16:00, Tuesday 11 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1656660.

The footpath is totally overgrown leading down to the wooden footbridge in places it is shoulder high with grass and weeds, this has an adverse effect as the sun and wind cannot get to the footbridge so the wooden planking becomes very slippery. This footbridge and footpath is a link between Chelveston and Chelveston cum Caldecott and is used by people of all ages, in it’s currant state it is unusable for some.

  • Hi, other footpaths have been cut recently (thank you) but it appears this one may have been missed, I have taken two photos from either side of the footbridge which as you can see is virtually un-passable now along with the wooden footbridge is extremely slippery, can you please confirm this is still out for cutting and has not been missed in error.

  • As of yesterday half of the footpath has still not been cut this is now head high slippery and virtually impassable it is now dangerous as you cannot see the ground below which has become a potential trip hazard. Can someone communicate with me or the ChelvestonPC to confirm something is going to be done.
