Overgrown tree overhanging the street, footpath and driveway.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 09:40, Sun 3 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 6 minutes later. ref: 1829435.

This tree has overgrown and overhangs several homes and the road. It has been shedding leaves and branches all year, I fill an entire green waste bin every week with what falls onto my driveway alone. These leaves cause a slip hazard when wet and are blown all the way down the street. Also the branches fall on to parked cars and cause damage, along with excessive bird excrement on the drives and cars, causing damage to the paintwork.
