Hedge obstructing footpath

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 20:09, Wed 1 December 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3154284.

See previous ref: 3036197 You stated that you would monitor this, after two weeks, to check that the homeowner has cut their hedge back. This has obviously not happened as the hedge is bigger than ever. Whilst I appreciate that this is not your responsibility, this overgrown hedge obstructs the footpath, which is your responsibility. This is a poorly lit, dangerous t-junction and the footpath needs to be accessible.
