Overgrown Hedges, Trees and Bushes

There have been a number of complaints received regarding overgrown hedges, trees and bushes in the Parish.  The responsibility lies with either Leicestershire County Council Highways, Landowners or Property Owners.

Where there is obstruction on footways or roads, the responsibility is with Highways to take action.

Highways have been notified of all footways and roads where the hedges are obstructive and have undertaken to conduct a survey within the next few weeks. We would then expect to see work undertaken.

If you have any further issues with overgrown hedges, trees or bushes obstructing public footways then please feel free to contact Highways directly by email: highwayscustomerservices@leics.gov.uk
