VW Gate Constantly Blocking Footpath

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 01:48, Friday 9 April 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2661270.

VW have recently installed a tall perimeter fence around their car lot. However this fence has an outward opening large gate (at least 1m wide) which opens into the footpath blocking it when left open. They gate is heavy and as a wheelchair use and regular use of this footpath the gate presents an unpassible barrier discriminating against myself and other disabled pedestrians
