Overhanging trees

Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category by Brenda Ryan at 16:39, Wednesday 10 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2150330.

From the back of White Doe Drive down the footpath to Arnold House there are overhanging trees from the back gardens of houses in Northampton Lane South. They obscure all light and have grown across onto residential flats (Cedar Gate) and Arnold House.

In bad weather excessive debris is left on the path and some branches are now hanging so low one has to duck down to get past. When very windy it is dangerous to walk down the path.
