Grass verges and privet hedges narrowing the tarmac footpath

Reported in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 12:10, Thu 5 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1756974.

(Although I’m delighted my road is finally going to be resurfaced, Oct./Nov. 2019), I’m wondering when the footpath problems will be addressed? Grass verges encroaching from one side, overgrown privet hedges from the other, and what little path is left to walk is broken and/or badly damaged causing TRIP HAZARDS everywhere! These problems just get worse every year.
