Vegetation has overgrown on Blacksmith's Lane, near Cherrytrees

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 19:07, Wed 9 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1798978.

The bushes have overgrown restricting visibility both around the corner and of a road sign (see attached). The verge has been overgrown for many years and has become more of a priority with HS2 road closures in the surrounding area.

There is also a large tree overhanging our garage. the tree is leaning over in our direction which means it could break and do damage to our property.
