  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the vegetation on Towcester Road; specifically that it is overgrown. Whilst we appreciate your comments, the location of the part of the vegetation that you have identified is not on the adopted highway. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the private landowner to maintain and is outside Northamptonshire Highways’ control. Nevertheless, we have written to the landowner requesting that the vegetation is cut back within the next 14 days. We will endeavour to revisit the site following the two weeks’ notice period. We are pleased to confirm, however, that the vegetation along that road that is within Northamptonshire Highways’ control will be attended to within the next 6 months.
