Hedges and Streams

CUTTING OF HEDGES

In conformity with the Cutting of Hedges Ordinances and the Parochial Administration Ordinance 2013, the Constables and Douzaines of the several parishes of the Island hereby give notice to the occupiers of land bordering public roads, or, if the land is unoccupied, to the owners thereof, that they are required during the first fifteen days of June and the last fifteen days of September, to cut and trim the hedges thereof
(a) up to a height of 12 ft. from the road surface where that road is ordinarily used by vehicular traffic – N.B. this includes the road AND footpath.
and
(b) up to a height of 8 ft. from the road surface where that road is not ordinarily used by vehicular traffic
and IMMEDIATELY THEREAFTER remove from such public roads and hedges all material cut from such hedges.
For the purpose of this notice, hedges shall be deemed to include trees and branches of trees, and all kinds of growth overhanging a public road at a height less than that specified above.
Any persons defaulting in the above requirements could be liable to a Civil Penalty of £50.00 with an additional fine of £5.00 per day in which the failure continues.
Note: “All kinds of growth” overhanging a public road also includes that which actually grows on roadside walls and banks. It is also necessary to ensure that the hedge is not only trimmed, but cut back so that no part of it less than the required height overhangs the boundary of the road or footpath.

STREAMS

In conformity with the Loi relative aux Douits, 1953 and the Parochial Administration Ordinance 2013, streams inspections are carried out twice yearly at the same time as the hedge inspections. Streams are required to be clear of all debris, weed growth etc. to ensure that they flow in an unobstructed manner. It is vital that owners complete their inspections and any necessary work at the proper time, i.e.
during the first fifteen days of June
during the last fifteen days of September

The Douzaine’s Streams Committee will inspect the watercourses thereafter and defaulters will be reminded of their obligations under the Law. A further seven days will be given for work to be undertaken before the area is re-inspected.
Any persons defaulting in the above requirements could be liable to a Civil Penalty of £50.00 with an additional fine of £5.00 per day in which the failure continues.
DON’T FORGET – OVERGROWN AND DIRTY STREAMS ARE NOT ONLY UNSIGHTLY BUT CAN RESULT IN FLOODING
