  • Investigation: Completed (No Action Necessary) - Whilst sympathetic to your concerns, there is no legal requirement for highways to remove or even prune trees for the benefit of a television reception and does not prune trees to ease this difficulty. We only undertake work to vegetation should it pose a safety risk to the Highway user. A television licence does not give the holder a guarantee or legal right to reception.

    State changed to: No further action
