Overgrown hedges all along the road

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 20:31, Friday 19 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 2164284.

The area at the beginning of Colonial Drive NN4 0BL is very over grown. The hedges have been allowed to grown too high and branches are hanging over the pathway making it impossible to walk on the path. A elderly gentleman who lives in the road does try to cut the hedges back but it really does need to be cut back by professionals. In my opinion the hedges need to be cut down by 2 or 3 meters off the top and cut back so the path can be used. The road looks scruffy and unkempt at the moment. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Many thanks
