  • We have visited site and assessed the trees in their location. The overhanging trees present are on land not deemed to be part of the publicly maintained highway by OCC in our capacity as local highway authority. The trees are on land that is likely to be maintainable by the Town Council and not by the County Council. They can be contacted at: 01993 704 379

    Many thanks for your enquiry.

  • Having spoken to the Witney Town Council, they say they do not maintain those pathways and it was OCC who maintain these pathways - therefore I came back to you, People are unable to use the path as it is blocked by the bushes/trees overhanging the pathway.
