Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3536116.
Overgrown and overhanging hedges outside no's 29 and 27 The High Street. The pavement is narrow and the overhangs and overgrowth reduce pavement width so that you frequently have to move into the road to avoid other passers by as there is not enough room to get by.

Thank you for your enquiry. 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.

Following another visit to the site we can confirm that some of the vegetation has not been attended to. This has now been passed on to the relevant department for further enforcement action. Thank you for your patience.
