Thank you for your enquiry. Our team have inspected this site and notified the home owner of their duty to ensure that the highway is kept clear of vegetation overhanging from private properties/businesses. We will re-inspect after 14 days have elapsed to check that the vegetation has been cleared and arrange for any further works such as weed killing or footway repairs to be undertaken.
