This corner is becoming very dangerous as the pedestrians cannot walk along the footpath as the bushes have overgrown - This is especially dangerous because of the schools near 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 been unable to trace the landowner so we have issued for the vegetation to be attended to within the next month.

  • After walking down this footpath twice in two days I went to report this issue, but have located this incident.

    The issue here is two fold. 1/ overhanging vegetation 2/ encroachment onto the footpath significantly reducing the width of the footpath.

    Issue one has been covered off in the councils previous reply, although I find it an unsatisfactory - especially considering the two local schools.

    Issue two - the vegetation is literally growing out of the footpath. This has significantly reduced the footpath width making it difficult to pass in a pushchair and I would guess impossible in a wheelchair unless you want to get your hands stung.

    If this footpath is adopted then this is 100% a council issue and I ask that this is reassessed. If it's not adopted I would question why and if this has wider implications on the permit only parking.
