Dangerous vegetation overhanging footpath

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 10:43, Friday 17 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3007421.

Trees and vegetation are overhanging and encroaching onto the footpath along its length between the western edge of Old Stratford, over the footbridge between Old Stratford and Deanshanger. This route is used by pedestrians, including a blind gentleman who regularly walks from Deanshanger EWS South Campus to Old Stratford, and cyclists. A community minded resident has cut back some of it but it is something that should be on the maintenance schedule rather than being dependent on Street Doctor Reports. This was last reported some time ago on reference 2899975. This was done some years ago as a result of problems encountered by the blind gentleman and we were told it would be done regularly. It hasn't. The report on the above reference says that it would be done in 4-6 weeks. This was last updated at the end of July and it is now mid September - more than six weeks have passed!

  • My earlier report was a bit ambiguous. The length of path that is the subject of this report is from Elizabeth Woodville School, South Campus to the western edge of Old Stratford, and includes the bridge over the Passenham Roundabout. The blind gentleman walks from Deanshanger to Stony Stratford using this route.
