  • Overhanging Huge tree from a front house garden. It’s on the corner of Northampton road and Higham road so when walking on footpath you have to go in the road. It’s completely dangerous to partially/blind people, pushchair users, less mobile ie wheelchair users and basically anyone as it’s that overgrown and low you can’t even bend low, it completely covers the width of the footpath. Needs looking into urgently.

  • This is still causing a dangerous hazard. The tree is still overhanging over the footpath. It looks like the centre path has been trimmed but how on earth two people can pass without being whipped in the face from the branches and how does a partially/blind person know to walk in between the branches. It shouldn’t over hang the footpath at all. What does it take to get this tree cut back before someone is hurt by the branches or a car due to having to walk in the road. This surely is neglect?
