Overgrown Bushes Blocking Pathway

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 00:53, Tue 1 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2412548.

Overgrown bushes are severely restricting the available path. The path should be 2m wide but the overgrown bushes have reduced the path width to less than 1 m. This is on an uphill portion of the path making it incredibly difficult for wheelchair users to use this section of the path which is exacerbated by the uneven surface and the overgrown grass. It is on the corner property rear garden bordering the open space grass beehind Standens Barn Primary parallel to Brickwell Court
