Weeds and debris on a public footpath

Reported in the Weeds category by Town Clerk at 10:03, Mon 8 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1688145.

This was reported in January 2019 and has now disappeared from your system. There are weeds and debris on the pavement on Desborough Road. It is necessary because of this to walk in single file and pedestrians are forced to walk too close to the kerb where the pavement is narrow and adjacent to walls and hedges. There is the added hazard of the total disregard of the 7.5 tonne weight restriction and cars speeding in excess of 30 mph restriction. This is urgent.
