Row of conifers on corner of Manatobia way & Byfield Road. These conifers are so wide that in parts the footpath is down to approx 12 inches. No access for wheelchairs or pedestrians we are forced to walk onto the high. The trees should be taken down completely as they are outside the property boundary of No.2 Manatobia way.

  • 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; specifically that it is encroaching the footway. Whilst we appreciate your comments, the location 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 from the footway within the next 14 days. We will endeavour to revisit the site following the two weeks’ notice period.

  • We can confirm that a re-visit has been carried out. Unfortunately the adjacent landowner has not complied with our request. This will now be referred to the Regulations Team for further enforcement action.
