Vegetation Maintenance

If vegetation is causing an obstruction to the public highway let us know and we will investigate.

Report overgrown vegetation

We will take action to arrange cut backs of vegetation in the following cases:

  • Vegetation is obstructing the clear passage of pedestrians/cyclists forcing them off the footway/cycleway
  • Vertical clearance above the footway is reduced to less than 2.1m or 2.5m on a cycleway
  • Overhanging in sight lines at bends, junctions, laybys or crossing points
  • Forcing vehicles, cyclist or pedestrians away from the nearside of the carriageway by more than 1m
  • Vehicles have to cross the centreline marking or cyclists have to cross cycle lane boundaries
  • Vegetation is blocking street lights, traffic signals or regulatory/warning signs
