Overgrown prickle bushes

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Stuart Prestedge at 20:55, Thu 2 December 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3156385.

Over 3/4 of the pathway is blocked 9nce again by overgrown bushes for about a 20' length of the path.

This is the same problem from a couple if years ago, which you cut back as the owners have no interest in maintaining them.

Might be easier and more efficient in the long run to remove them permantely.

  • Owner who is responsible will ignore requests once again as they did previously even the neighbours have spoken direct to them.

    Please just have them removed this time and not just cut back.

    Path is getting more blocked every day.
