Thank you for your enquiry. Site visit has been undertaken. A letter has been sent to the landowner requesting that the vegetation is cut back within 14 days. A re-visit will then be undertaken to ensure this work has been carried out.

No action has been taken to cut back the trees and access to the neighbouring driveway is significantly impeded. Please can this report be updated to confirm the next course of action

Unfortunately, on our re-visit, we observed that birds were nesting in this conifer hedge. Therefore, the hedge will not be attended to until the nesting season is over (September). We can confirm that the path is currently accessible; however, we apologise for the delay in resolving this issue.
