Overgrown hedges and shrubs problem.

Reported via desktop anonymously at 14:35, Tuesday 2 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 18 hours, 44 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5796161.

Hedges are overgrown as a result to scratch my car when I was prioritising the upcoming car from the opposite way. The hedges are grown to the point that there is no space enough for two cars to pass.

  • All wild birds are protected. This includes their nests (whilst in use or being built) as well as any eggs the nest may contain. Under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 (as amended), it is an offence to:
    • intentionally kill, injure or take any wild bird
    • intentionally damage, destroy or take the nest of any wild bird while it is in use or being built (nests of golden eagle, white tailed eagle and osprey are protected all year round)
    • intentionally destroy an egg of any wild bird
    • intentionally or recklessly disturb certain wild birds or their dependent young while they are nesting (including disturbance of nesting young)
    Although no dates are legally stated between which hedges cannot be trimmed, cut, laid or coppiced, the main bird breeding season is recognised as being between 1 March and 31 July which we adhere to. Please note, if the issue reported is classified by our Highway Officer as an emergency, arrangements will be made to make the hedge safe for both road and pedestrian users in line with our Highways Safety Inspection Policy.
