Vegetation obstructing pavement

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 21:09, Friday 5 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2144056.

The pavement down the slope is obstructed by vegetation. I’ve reported this to Northampton BC, who have in turn referred it to idverde. The bushes are on private land, so they are unable to cut it back.

“ Idverde have Looked at this one and we maintain the grass but the ivy is not growing from the land we maintain it is from private land. If its obstructing the footpath it would have to be reported to Northamptonshire County Council as the highway authority.”
