  • We have visited site and assessed the trees in their location. OCC maintains land
    that is HMPE (highway maintainable at public expense) in its capacity as local
    highway authority. The trees referred to in the enquiry are on land that is not HMPE.
    You can access the land registry at: search-property-information?land-registry to find details of the adjacent landowner to pursue your enquiry. It may
    also be appropriate to contact the District, Town or Parish Council to further your
    enquiry. You are also within your common law rights as a landowner to cut any
    overhanging or encroaching vegetation back to the boundary line of your property.
    Many Thanks For your enquiry.
