Overgrown Pathway

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 18:05, Wednesday 24 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2570112.

There is a pathway from the top of Beaumont Drive through to Tiptoe Close and it is heavily bushy, with bushes at 8 foot high and 5-6 foot wide. This is dangerous when its dark as there is no lighting in this area at all and dangerous for anyone coming home at night. This really needs cutting down, the shorter the better as it hasn’t been cut for a very long time, and will grow again in the spring & summer.
