Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1694637.
This is a perennial problem as the hedgerow is close to the road (High Street, opposite the Village Hall leading down to Church Hill). Visibility is impaired for cars and pedestrians trying to cross the road. Also the overhanging vegetation could cause damage to passing vehicles.
Thank you for reporting a fault on the highway. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.

This problem is becoming more severe and the overgrown hedge is now obstructing visibility at the junction severely. Vehicles emerging from Chequers Lane cannot see traffic approaching the junction from the Teeton direction and it is potentially very dangerous. Have the investigations been completed and is work to solve the problem scheduled ?
