Trees, hedges and grass
Complaints about trees and hedges on private property blocking public access
Homeowners are responsible for the maintenance of any tree or hedge near a public highway and we will carry out pro-active inspections and inform the owners of any hazardous overhanging foliage.
We will give notice to owners seeking their co-operation in trimming back vegetation. After the expiry of the notice, we will arrange for the works to be done and recover the cost from owners.
