Tree overhanging from garden, need to walk right next to the wall or in the road.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 12:25, Tue 3 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 12 minutes later. ref: 1754300.

The tree is behind a high garden wall on Linden Ave between Shaftesbury St & Mill Rd, Kettering. It is overhanging the pavement restricting the pedestrian right of way causing you to either walk close to the wall where anything can fall from to tree or in the road. There are a lot of children or parents with pushchairs etc that pass here due to close proximity to the park and primary school. Also when the leaves have fallen it makes it extremely slippery. It is on ongoing problem which is worsening every year. The foliage now reaches almost as low as my chest height and I am 5’5” in total
