  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the fruit trees in this area. Whilst we appreciate your comments, the location of the vegetation you have identified is not on the adopted highway. It is therefore the responsibility of the private landowner/developer to maintain and is outside Northamptonshire Highways’ control. We have contacted Daventry Town to expedite this matter further for you. Nevertheless, we will refer your enquiry to our street cleansing team to resolve your safety concerns of the fruit on the footway.
