  • Thank you for your enquiry. The site has been visited and an inspection has identified that the vegetation is privately owned. A letter will be sent to the landowner requesting that the vegetation is cut back within the next month. A re-visit will be undertaken within the next month to ensure that this work has been carried out. If the owner fails to satisfactory complete this work then it will be passed to the Regulations team to start enforcement proceedings.
