Pathway obscured, not accessible

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 18:52, Thursday 23 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3021317.

Walking from Bushacre Court turning left into Garrard Way the path has disappeared just before you get to the entrance with Simply Gym on the Telford Way Industrial Estate. You can't really walk on the road because of all the parked cars and it is a busy road. Many many pedestrains walk up here, please cut back and clear the pathway.

  • 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 on this section of path; specifically that is obstructing the footpath. 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 resident requesting that the vegetation is cut back within the next 14 days.
