Encroachment of Highway Verge outside Green Acres, 76 Guilsborough Road

Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 12:37, Tue 30 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 3 minutes later. ref: 1713563.

The highway verge outside Green Acres, 76 Guilsborough Road, Ravensthorpe, has been built on by a previous property owner. They have created a stone edged raised border which is planted. As this is located on the highway in a very narrow section of road and opposite The High Street junction, it causes a significant obstruction and causes drivers to swerve into the path of oncoming cars to avoid hitting the stone wall. Please can this unlawful construction be removed and the highway verge restored to grass.
