  • Thank you for your enquiry. We understand you have concerns about the vegetation on Bedford Road; specifically that you mention it is overgrown and encroaching onto the footpath. Whilst we appreciate your comments, we can confirm that 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 landowner requesting that the vegetation is cut back from the footway within the next month. We will endeavour to revisit the site following the months’ notice period.
