Reported via Android in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Mr john powell at 09:58, Wed 5 October 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3869211.

There are two tree's in baffin close that need attention the first near to the junction of Columbus Crescent it is also obscuring the street lamp which makes this junction so dark at night , the second is getting so tall it could be dangerous in high winds and really is to high in a built up area , we rely on the street lamp in baffin for illumination in Columbus as the original one was removed , the nearest is grenville close which doesn't help much !

  • Totally agree that these trees are out of control and need attention too as soon as possible before the strong winds send them over into someone’s property
