Neglected maintenance of highway vegetation

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Alex Freegard at 12:23, Mon 24 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 3 minutes later. ref: 1672119.

The owner(s) of the land adjacent to Boleyn Cottage, Church Lane, Grafton Regis fully neglect their land which has now fully overgrown onto the highway slip which has not been being maintained by the council either. This is killing our hedge and the nettles danger our children. The highway view as we exit our driveway is also obscured by several metres. We have reported this previously and someone from the council visited but the owner did nothing. The council mow the highway slip opposite but don't address the overgrown highway.
