    I urge some urgency with this due to the restricted view that potentially provides likely conditions for an accident when exiting Saxonlea Close.

  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the condition of the vegetation on Wellingborough Road; specifically that you feel it is overgrown and is blocking visibility for motorists. We appreciate your concerns and can confirm that the vegetation in this area are programmed to be cut, in the near future, under our maintenance programme. This will most likely be in October, as there are currently birds nesting in the vegetation there. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
