  • Thank you for your enquiry, concerning overgrown vegetation in this area. Whilst we appreciate your comments, the location of the vegetation that you have identified is not on the adopted highway. Unfortunately it is therefore the responsibility of the private landowner to maintain and is outside Northamptonshire Highways’ control. Nevertheless, we have written to the landowner requesting that the vegetation is cut back within the next two weeks. We will endeavour to revisit the site following the two weeks’ notice period.

  • Trivial. Petty. Pathetic. The anonymous reporter. I think it is clear from the (returning in darkness cloak and dagger style) photo that this is not a large overhanging tree, a towering hedge or dangerous hazard but a wispy plant no more than 2feet wide & protruding a foot. So maybe we should ask why or who would waste peoples time with this? 1) maybe its one of the people continually blocking the pavement so mothers with buggies & children in the street have to dangerously access the road to simply leave their homes?! 1) or was it the man who thinks it is ok to continually park 3/4 on the pavement, overhanging a driveway & letting his dogs run loose on peoples gardens laying cables & yet doesn't like to be challenged about it?!

    I think this complaint is clearly a petty retort & if anything is to be investigated & time put to good use- it shouldn't be re a pot plant but inconsiderate road users (path users) creating a hazard daily

  • In response to the above there are now a number of neighbours in despair at 'some' of the dog walkers utter disregard whilst parking in the street. Apart from letting dogs poo on the path & leaving it! I could give you numerous examples of cars across driveways..or extremes of on the path or parked a mile away from the kerb, which obstruct larger vehicles getting through. It will only let me post 3

    Maybe do something about that instead??
