Residents – Hedges next to the highway/footpaths

We have been asked by Highways to remind residents with hedges adjoining the footpaths to please cut them back before nesting season begins in March. When cutting them back please remember to allow for new growth over the summer to prevent the footpaths being obstructed over the summer.

If you are cutting during the nesting season (March to end of August) please check for nests and only use hand tools.

Thank you for your assistance.
