Less than half the job done reinstating the path

Reported via mobile in the Weeds category anonymously at 13:37, Friday 23 July 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2885835.

So in contradiction to your closed report summary from job 2802677. You are not cutting the hedges due to nesting birds…you trimmed the hedge… Great. But didn’t do anything about the path and reinstatement of its original width… no.

The path is less than the width of a shoe in places making it unusable for pedestrians with prams.

What’s been done is the easiest thing you can think of. Run a tractor down the path and trim the hedge.

What about the path. Guessing as this takes more time it’s easy to charge the council twice for doing one job.

All I can do is report incomplete and incompetent works again and again.

  • I also use this route to walk my son to school and at places we both have to walk in the road due to lack of footpath and stinging nettles. This is becoming unusable and very unsafe
