  • Embarrassingly we received a letter from Highways Dept today asking us to cut this hedge back from the footpath. This IS NOT our hedge or our responsibility. Please would the Council cut this hedge ASAP as it belongs to them. It IS NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE OWNERS OF 2 Whistlets Close. Thank you

  • I have rang 3 times over a week period to discuss the letter I received from Megan Woodhouse of the Highways Agency Dated 29/7 and on the three occasions the switchboard lady who was very nice said she would ask the her to ring me back. I am still waiting for the call.
