Trees restricting light in dark alley

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 06:34, Friday 22 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3077502.

Trees on one side of the footpath at the bottom of Jacklin Court have grown over the years and now almost totally obscure the light. The alley already has a very uneven surface and the risk of stumbling is increased due to the poor visibility.

  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the condition of the vegetation in this area; specifically that the vegetation is overgrown. 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 Wellingborough Norse to expedite this matter further for you.
