Towcester Town Council has received a report raising concerns over a tree on land adjacent between the boundary wall of 33 Northampton Road and the public footpath. There are roots from the tree present in the footpath, which is a trip hazard and the owner of 33 Northampton Road is concerned these may also pose a risk to the property. An inspection of the tree is required to determine the best course of action.
