  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the condition of an overhanging tree on this section of pathway. Whilst we appreciate your comments, 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 resident requesting that the vegetation is cut back within the next 14 days.
