Verge that appears to be unadopted now causing contaminate issues

Reported via desktop in the Damaged/Loose category anonymously at 16:38, Wed 4 November 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2370903.

There is unadopted land between the road and my boundary wall/fence with is causing drainage issues within my property and will eventually damage my boundaries. Part of this land has a telegraph pole coming out of it and with farm tractors frequently using this road it will only be a matter of time before they impact this pole again. A kerb needs to be put in becuase when it heavily rains the water runs down the lane and into my property and also pushes debris into my fence and boundary wall. A kerb would protect the telegraph pole and storm water damage. This issue has been present for a number of years now and an accident has occured with a tractor damaging the telegraph pole already cutting off all communications surrounding the area.
