Multiple cones that have been placed on this road blocking it

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 15:52, Friday 26 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2574174.

Lots of cones that have been placed along the road that aren’t by the council or highways, preventing people from driving or parking along the area. It is a huge danger. Causing congestion and accidents as it prevents people from parking and turning. There is no yellow or white lines preventing use of this road so the cones are redundant and an obstruction to the highway. This has been the case for several weeks and more cones have now appeared, blocking more and more of this road and increasing the area which they block on a day by day basis. As a resident of this road, it is causing great problems as I can’t park because of it and people using the nursery (where we believe the cones have been placed by) are blocking the areas we residents usually park. The nursery have recently refused to let parents park in their private car park and are now blocking the public highway too with their cones.
