Green verge destroyed by house tenants using it as a drive.

Reported in the Verges - Damaged by Vehicles category anonymously at 15:01, Sat 23 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1858874.

The tenant of one of the houses the verge is in front of (136 -138) keeps using the verge as a means to reverse into his drive, understandably to avoid hindering traffic. However, the act in doing so is ruining the verge, and destroying public property. The verge has been in a similar state for at least 3 years, but this is the worst I have seen it. I have tried to reason without the council's input, to no avail. I would like to maintain anonymity, as I have to live with my neighbours. Thank you
