Vegetation overhanging a head height. Trees so big nearly forcing you onto the road.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 10:48, Friday 29 May 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2133724.

Between bressingham gardens and Lambrook drive vegetation has gone wild. A bush from a property has been allowed to grow and trimmed to a minimum. Now it’s forcing you onto the road. Now with Social distancing this should be enforced and taken back to boundary line! Nearer to lambrook end there is overhanging trees and bramble which is at eye level and also encroaching onto the path way. It has got so bad people are discarding the rubbish in there as it’s a tangled mess. I would appreciate some feedback on this as to who’s responsible and how we get something done to stop an incident occurring.

  • This has now become urgent thorny bramble is at head height. It’s dangerous to all but a blind person wouldn’t stand a chance. No use putting a letter through home owners door as nobody lived there since lockdown and I believe it’s rented. I would agree that some on the trees belong to the homeowner. However the bramble and unkept area is the councils responsibility as was there before the house. Needs following up urgently.
