Tree - Station Road

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 12:49, Friday 17 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3007839.

Tree next to property is causing damage to the tarmac on the footpath and the road, the roots are breaking up the tarmac and is concerned that it will affect their property with subsidence. Also a recent crack has appeared in the road that may be due to the tree.

A Large branch which is approx. 10 foot long has been knocked off the tree by a lorry and was laying on the road but has been moved to the side of the road, regularly moving parts of the tarmac that have been dislodged, by the tree roots and moving them to the side of the path so not cause an obstruction.
