Hedge overgrowing the path and causing us to walk on the road
Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 09:14, Tue 9 July 2019
Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 1 minute later. ref: 1689529.
Hedge has fully overgrown the path. I use this path daily for the school run and can no longer get past. I am having to take my 5year old and 1 year old in his buggy onto the road (which is blind to motorists) to get round the hedge. I have had a to do this for the last 3 weeks and find it extremely dangerous. The hedge is on the property on the corner of Hortonsfield road and Hesketh road.

Thank you for your enquiry. The site has been visited 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.

Hello I would like something done about my neighbours parking there cars half on the road and half on the grass verge by the time winter is here there will be no grass and it will just be mud and slush! This keeps happening year after year and they just don’t care! I live at 6 Warren road and it’s the neighbours to my right. I do hope that something will be done about this very distressing matter. Many thanks
