Between Stone and Hartwell

Reported via mobile in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 14:38, Monday 17 June 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6117877.

Cycle path/pavement is so overgrown both on the verge and the hedge that it provides significant issues to width of path and also branches hanging down over the path as to make it dangerous for users, especially those on bikes. Some of these would have certainly injured me had it not been for my helmet

  • 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.
