Action on overgrowing hedges

The Parish Council is contacting Tewkesbury Borough Council's contractors, Amey, to take enforcement action on hedges that grow over and partly obstruct pavements.

Amey are expected to contact householders and, if no action is taken, they will cut the hedges and raise a charge.

The decision by the Council follows a number of advisory notes on this site and in Grapevine, but the problem persists.

The Council is also looking at ways in which the rules against parking on pavements can be enforced.  This practice puts pedestrians at risk, whereas parking on the road is both legal and helpful in reducing traffic speed through the village.

Would you please advise when the errant hedges will be cut back to the back edge of the pavement
