  • Investigation: Completed (No Action Necessary) - We have recently inspected the location, and the trees were also inspected in January, and can confirm that there are no safety defects affecting the Highway user at this time. Whilst we will continue to monitor the area closely via our routine safety inspection, no further action will be taken. Any works we undertake to the tree are for Highway safety reasons only and we will not be undertaking any works below ground. We also don’t undertake any works on private land, to repair third party assets. To expedite this matter further, we kindly advise that you would need to contact you household insurer, as we don’t undertake survey works to discount interference from a highway asset such as a tree. Should your insurers wish to contact our insurers, this can be done via any claim against West Northamptonshire Highways for damages as a potential result of this issue.
