Footpath completely inaccessible

Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 11:16, Wed 3 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1683029.

This is the safe footpath for Hillside Road residents to the village. The footpath is completely inaccessible due to heavy overgrown hedge and vegetation. The same issue can be seen on the path on the other side of the road. I currently cannot walk my baby safety in a pram to Flore nursery- nor can anyone at Hillside Road access the village without having to walk on the uneven verge (not possible with a pram or running due to uneven surface) safely. Daventry District Council have confirmed this as a Street Doctor problem that needs to be addressed. (I had to Use obstruction category as no other options available- the vegetation is a major problem Here)
