Back to all reports

All the trees up past the post box are now covering the path

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 10:03, Thursday 18 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2161414.

At the top of Cottage Gardens on the left hand side as you look down from Wellingborough Road all the trees are so overgrown that they now cover the path so you have to walk on the road which obviously isn’t safe. They really do need cutting back.

    Hope you are safe and well?

    I have received a phone call from Mrs Isabel Ablitt of 26 Trussell Road NN3 9NS Mobile: 07488244229

    At the rear of her property there are lots of thorny bushes that have encroached the Public Walk Way and into her garden.

    Yesterday she had to help a Lady who got stuck in the thorny bushes with her Mobility Scooter.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

    Kind regards

    Sheila Lobo Customer Information Officer
