  • We are taking appropriate enforcement action. The enforcement process can sometimes take a long time to complete. Although you may not see any site changes quickly work will still be taking place behind the scenes. Thank you for your patience while this work takes place.

  • Why has this been changed to no further action? Surely this should be in progress until it is completed?

  • Apologies, having since spoken to another officer with more local area knowledge, it appears that some of the trees need enforcement which have been acted upon, however the bushes on the bend as you're heading out of the village are highway. We are fully aware that these need cutting back and we are arranging to have Greencuts attend in September (after nesting season) to complete a full cut back of this area. Our Highways Officer drove the road on 05/08/21 and whilst we appreciate the comments, currently it is not dangerous and there is adequate space for all road users to stick to their side of the road. The system shuts down the enquiry as soon as it is moved to an enforcement status, we are already actioning both issues and were aware of them before this enquiry so there is no need for it to remain open. Whilst we can't guarantee timescales we can assure you the works will be arranged and completed. Thank you for reporting this matter.
