Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3074858.

Ref problem 2957970 raised in August and closed stating the path would be cleared within four weeks. It hasn't so I've done a bit of clearing myself and wonder if anyone is going to turn up to do a proper clearance or not.

  • I received an update from a parishioner today who stated that, through a combination of the clearance work I've done and the fact that we are now in November and a lot of growth is starting to die back, it is now possible to use the path again. However there is one short section that has become very unsafe, particularly if wet, where the path slopes steeply down into the adjacent brook rather than on a level. Is this something in your scope to address?
