Overgrown Hedges

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 14:40, Monday 11 May 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 2112316.

In Weldon on the public path and we have 2 large hedges along the footpath as you walk toward the church and fields. We normally cut the hedges back to keep the path clear and tidy however in the current climate we don’t feel comfortable to do so. There is a steady stream of people passing for walks and dog walkers and we can’t risk contracting anything from passers. The gardener that cuts the grass and hedges in the area had told me to contact yourselves in order for him to be able to cut the hedges back, as he has the tools to do this quickly and efficiently. Please may I request that this be done as the path is now very busy and the hedges are overgrown?
