There is a huge overgrown bush across the pavement

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 10:41, Wednesday 10 July 2024

Sent to North Northamptonshire Council less than a minute later. ref: 6212266.

Due to the bush being overgrown and cars being parked on the path for the school run pedestrians are being forced to walk in the road as they cannot get by. Sometimes there is no gap for pedestrians, let alone buggies and wheelchairs. The bush is also full of pollen and lots of parents have commented that brushing past it sets off their or their children's hayfever so they have to go into the road. It is inconsiderate and unsafe for anyone and it is a really busy road with the access to the school a little way up. All down the road there are overgrown weeds along the path and vegetation, it looks a mess.
