I am part of local residents group & our group reported this issue to Wellingborough Council and here is the written response by Matt O'Donnell (Team Leader Heath Protection) saying 'I would advise that as this is vegetation growing from a private property and obstructing the highway (the alley at the rear of 148 Newcomen Road, NN8 1JW is an adopted highway) it should be reported to Northamptonshire County Councils Street Doctor. That is what we are doing, please get this obstruction cleared before we take this issue further.
