Hedge Trimming Responsibilities

Following the Parish Council meeting on Wednesday 13th November, we were informed by our County Councillor that the trimming of hedges against the highways is now the responsibility of landowners/householders.

Although the County Council has taken responsibility for the hedge trimming in previous years, because of financial constraints they are no longer able to do so, and the responsibility of hedge trimming comes back to the property/land owners (as the law states).
