Vegetation has overgrown on Blacksmith's Lane, near Cherrytrees
Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 19:07, Wednesday 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.
Thank you for reporting a fault. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.

Thank you for your enquiry. We have investigated your concerns. The vegetation in question is a boundary hedge which falls under the responsibility of the adjoining landowners. We will be contacting the landowners requesting that the vegetation is cut back from the public highway.
