The bushes along Woodale Road, which is adopted, are overgrown and:

1) blocking the path for buggys & wheel chair users, who have to veer towards the road

2) overgrown to the point branches are now climbing over my fence and into my garden from the road

The bushes have thorns and i have a small baby, which is a concern.

  • Thank you for the update. The home owners seem to have been cutting back. Its the highway vegetation sections (where there is a fence and boundary) are the ones left overgrown. Looking forward to West Northants Council sorting those out.

  • There has still been no change. There are sections which are not the responsibility of home owners. These are overgrown and climbing into gardens. Is there an email address or telephone number i can call to report this?
