Bushes at narrow part of road encroaching onto highway

Reported in the Overgrown tree/hedges category by NAVENBY PARISH COUNCIL at 10:51, Wed 29 July 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 374247.

When approaching the crossroads at the Wellingore end of the High Dyke from Greens industrial site the bushes and vegetation on the right hand side are growing into the road making it virtually unable to pass in a car without going onto the verge. The Parish Councillor who has reported this advises that not only does it require cutting back but also the bushes needed 'grubbing out' again as happened when this was reported a few years ago.

  • The Parish Councillor who reported this problem has now had the opportunity to look at the verge and has advised that although he can see that the bushes have been lightly trimmed they are still causing a problem with access and really need a much more vigorous cut-back and thinning. This road is an extremely narrow lane and it doesn't take much to obstruct the flow of vehicles. Could someone go out again please?

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because the hedge is set back roughly 1ft from the carriageway edge and has recently been cut. Thank you for reporting this matter.
