Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 17:46, Sunday 7 March 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2593016.

The overgrown ivy is on the council’s side or highways side of my fence & it’s rotting my fence. How do I go about getting this removed by the council ASAP before the fence falls down. You can clearly see in the photo that the root is on the other side.

  • I have taken photos from my side of the fence & you can see how much my fence is being pulled over by the ivy on the other side of the fence. My neighbour is now worried that their fence is going to get pulled down by my fence. I’ve been told that someone is coming out to look at it, could you please advise when this will be down as I have a greenhouse that I need to put up. I live on my own & im worried if my fence falls down, my house will be exposed to anyone.
