Vegetation obstructing footpath and street lamps

Hello all, just want to notify you of vegetation obstructing a footpath in width and height along Burcote Rd Towcester. It's also obstructing the light splays from street lighting. Allow 2 days cutting for a 3 person team (1 full day for an experienced/motivated team) . All can be done from ground, but will require a footpath closure during the works. Chipper and tipper also required due to limited space between boudary fence and footpath to spread the arisings. Possibly been an issue for 1 to 2 years judging by the growth rate, but we've only noticed it in the past few months. Definitely not having a whinge, just wanted to notify you as I know you can't be everywhere all the time, but thought you could add it to the next works programme. (I'm sure someone will complain and act like it's the worst thing in the world!)
