Bushes overhanging onto the footpath

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 09:14, Tue 2 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1681393.

The whole hedge that goes from pavillons onto lathbury is now gwtting so big it has reduced the pathe to single file, you can not get past with a puchchair and child. Cutting round the street name does not solve the issue.this is very dangerous for children as going round to a main busy road, you can not see other people or cars

  • Thank you for your enquiry. The site was visited yesterday due to other complaints and an inspection has identified that the vegetation is privately owned. A letter has been sent to the owner/occupier requesting that the vegetation is cut back within 30 days. A re-visit will then be undertaken in 30 days to ensure this work has been carried out. If the owner fails to satisfactory complete this work then it will be passed to the Regulations team to start enforcement proceedings
