Vegetation encroaching on and narrowing the pavement

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Mike Cook at 12:36, Thursday 30 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3034040.

This is a repeat of 1673823 reported in 2019 and I was requested to make a new request. This problem has now become much worse due to the overgrown vegetation encroaching the footpath even more leaving just enough room for one person only. In addition WPD have currently closed the pavement on the north side of Buckingham road with traffic light control and all traffic passing extremely close to the aforementioned restricted footway. I would suggest that this needs dealing with as a matter of priority and not left for another 2 years!
