The footpath is too narrow

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 07:05, Fri 21 April 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 4468677.

The footpath is too narrow which results in high top vehicles being able to drive too close and hit my roof. The previous report was closed without any follow up and this should be re-opened.

Ref: 2941934

The property is grade II listed and predates the footpath which needs to be upgraded.

  • In addition to the path being too narrow to offset vehicles hitting my roof, it is also causing damp issues inside. My living room is below the level of the road and so the walls can’t breathe. I request a French ditch or similar with breathable subfloor materials to protect my listed property

  • Can you please follow up with an update on the impact the highway is having on my property. It is Grade II listed and therefore you also have a responsibility to ensure the property remains in a good state of repair. This is currently unachievable without highways improvements.
