Hi Not sure if it falls under weed category.

This is regarding the left behind trimmed hedges. Few days back one of my immediate neighbours contact me to complain about the left behind trimmed hedges which do not look good and also at the risk of being put at fire. responsible for cutting and leaving the hedge there.

Could you please look into the matter.

Thanks and regards

  • Thank you for your enquiry. We understand you have concerns about hedge trimmings left on the road on Lake Avenue. Whilst we appreciate your comments, the hedge, and cuttings, are the responsibility of the private land owner, so the cutting was not done by Northamptonshire Highways. Whilst you mention it is unsightly, the cuttings are not posing a risk to the highway user.

    State changed to: not the council's responsibility
