  • Landowners and occupiers are required to trim any hedge on their property that is next to the public highway where the growth is preventing the passage, or affecting the safety, of the highway user. In this instance the highway does appear to be obstructed ¬†from full use. The land/property owner will be contacted and if action is not untaken we will follow up accordingly.
