Low hanging basket

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 16:30, Saturday 20 April 2024

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5878557.

There is a low hanging basket, anyone 5 foot 9 or above will hit it. I saw a partially sighted person nearly hit it the other day. If anyone walks into it they could stumble in to the road. It would need placed much higher up or removed. It is outside the door to 8 west end terrace, hexham NE46 3DB. Surprised it got planning permission really.

  • Northumberland County Council Update-
    We have investigated the issue reported and found that it is on private land. However,
    we do have powers under Section 154 (1) of the Highways Act 1980, to advise the
    owner/occupier of adjoining land they are required to cut back vegetation so as to
    remove the cause or likelihood of danger, obstruction or interference to the users of the
    Highway (footpath). In most cases the vegetation is cut back very quickly by the owner/
    occupier, but in some instances this can be a lengthier process but be assured we will
    follow due process to ensure the work is carried out.
    Thank you for bringing this to our attention
