Shop spreading across greenway and neighbouring properties

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 10:39, Sunday 19 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3010804.

Shop continues to set stalls up and stack boxes in front of shop AND neighbouring properties. Tables and boxes are set up in front of neighbouring properties which do not form part of the shop frontage. Tables and tents, together with stacks of shopping baskets and plastic boxes cause an obstruction of the greenway, which should be a clearway? In the early hours this is exasperated by the early morning deliveries which are spread across the adjacent side of the pavement, all of which is sorted and distributed from the pavement to and from vehicles parked on the crossing zig zag lines and in the dark.
