  • Thank you for your enquiry. Site visit has been undertaken. No. 74 has been sent a letter requesting that the vegetation is cut back. A re-visit will then be undertaken after 14 days to ensure this work has been carried out. The hedges at the other properties (72 and 70) are not currently causing an obstruction for the highway user. This will continue to be monitored through programmed safety inspections. The previous report for number 68 has been updated.
