The hedging, and shrubbery along this stretch of road Has been allowed to encroach into the road

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 06:32, Tue 12 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3056634.

The hedging, and shrubbery along this stretch of road approaching the school, has been unkempt for years allowing it to encroach into the road by about 1 metre. This has narrowed the road and resulted in parking on verges and clogging of the road by parked vehicles. Also, scratching cars as they try to avoid parked vehicles. Flore has other narrow roads impacted by inadequate hedge maintenance.
