Advice to residents on keeping footpaths clear of overhanging trees and shrubs

During this period of lockdown and self-isolation we would encourage all residents to take this opportunity to check their fences, hedges or trees for weeds, brambles or branches growing onto or into the footpaths.

Please ensure that they are cut back to enable walkers using the footpaths a free and easy passage.

Information from the Highways Act 1980 is included below for your guidance.
