Private Hedge Cutting

After the recent heavy rainfall, hedges and gardens have grown at a great speed.  The PC have received complaints that branches/brambles etc are overgrowing into the road which may cause cars to avoid the branches which may cause an accident.  There are also walkers and cyclists to consider.  Farmers are not allowed to cut the hedges which surround their fields until September unless the hedge is growing into the road.  There is a legal requirement for hedges to be properly maintained.  Hedges are not permitted to grow more than 2.4 metres in height.  The Parish Council thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
