Vegetation stops use of foothpath

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 18:04, Saturday 16 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3066412.

Vegetation forces pedestrians to step into a busy/speeding road on a corner. This problem exists along the whole of Rushton Hall Park wall from near Styles Lodge to Triangular Lodge. This is the second time this as been reported. The path needs spraying at the start of each growing period, but needs clearing this Winter in readiness for next Spring.
