Footpath Overgrown

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 09:23, Wednesday 7 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2329540.

There is a Greenway cycle/footpath between Higham Ferrers and Irthlingborough and the path has become very over grown especially from School Lane to the footbridge over the A45, the bushes/trees have grown over the path making it only possible for one person to walk past at a time and people have started to walk off the path onto the verges. What is particularly worrying is a branch of a tree is overhanging the path at eye height but it is covered in ivy so just looks like a soft bush

  • Thank you for clearing the overgrown vegetation on the Greenway Higham Ferrers however at the section near School Lane - Parker Way bollards a dangerous tree branch has been left. The branch has been cut but still overhangs the path at eye height and has been left with a jagged point on it, hidden slightly by vegetation. I hope you are planning to return asap to finish an otherwise great job.
