Overgrown hedge corner St Johns Ave/Obelisk Rise

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 19:07, Fri 15 July 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3679825.

I would like to report the overgrown hedge at 1 St John's Avenue, Northampton, NN2 8QZ, junction with 66 Obelisk Rise. I checked postcode on Royal Mail website. This problem has been going on for months. I see there is already a job reported by someone a week ago and also one from May 2022 but still nothing has been done. The footpath is blocked by this overgrown hedge and pedestrians are forced to walk on the grass. As previous person mentioned, this causes problems for pushchairs and for wheelchairs. The house in question may be unoccupied by the look of it. Please deal with this problem. Thanks.
