Trees overhang from both sides

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Chris Wilson at 12:04, Sun 26 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3025425.

Holloway has become very overgrown, when delivery vans drive down they catch the trees above. The trees drop a lot of debris which blocks the drains (as reported otherwise) and cause debris on the raised walk way which is dangerous (reported)

  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the vegetation on Hollow Way; specifically that it is overgrown. Whilst we appreciate your comments, the location of the part 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 within the next 14 days. We will endeavour to revisit the site following the two weeks’ notice period. We are pleased to confirm, however, that the vegetation along this road that is within Northamptonshire Highways’ control will be attended to within the next 6 months.
