Tress are overgrown and cross my property boundary and are a hazzard

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 19:54, Mon 12 July 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2859773.

Trees are so over grown and over shadowing my property and recently a branch collapsed and hit me in the head on my property. I have reported this before but have been ignored and so will be seeking legal advice on my injury. This area is used by children to access the school and next a child will be seriously injured by fallen branches.

  • Not sure I can see any difference with the work carried out. It was noted by locals that they sat in their vehicles for a few hours and then trimmed for a few minutes and then.left. Not sure if it’s a tactic that with a little growth they would be called back again. The trees still look to be over grown as before and doesn’t address the previous problem
