Overgrown trees

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Karen Rate at 13:31, Sat 23 May 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2126430.

Trees have not been cut back for as long as I can remember - certainly many years, and the low branches are so overgrown they are obstructing the pavements. They also massively restrict the light to the closest houses and drop leaves and sticky resin onto the parked cars. Cutting my front lawn is hampered by low branches.

  • I am a wheelchair user so clear access to and from my house is very important to me. My disability also means that I cannot physically resolve the problems myself eg. Sweep up leaves, trim low branches etc.
