Cannot walk along footpath is blocked by large bush
Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 16:26, Saturday 30 May 2020
Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2135331.
The council have told me officially and the Ombudsman that the property is occupied. A complete lie. The footpath presents a danger to pedestrians. The council can pay to fix this problem.
Thank you for reporting a fault. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.

You said in your email are sending a letter to the property. I know its unoccupied. For the next two weeks mobility scooters and people can traverses the Curb.
That is unacceptable. I feel this in not looking after the needs of people who have no option but to travel on a mobility scooter.

One photo shows the entrance to the property you are posing a letter to. Do postmen carry jungle machete's now? Tell me how a mobility scooter or push chair can use this foot way please. You think it safe to leave this for two weeks and more?
