Hedges blocking pavement

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Dennis Coles at 23:06, Tue 2 August 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3726320.

The hedges are overgrowing the pavement forcing pedestrians to walk out into the road. This is particularly a problem when people are using push chairs as they take older children to school, having to walk onto the road where traffic is particulary busy at that time of day and visability is limited by bends in the road and parked vehicles.
