September 2015

The time is here once again, for you to cut back any roadside hedges, banks and trees, and to cut/clean/repair any streams, douits and watercourses which may pass through your property. Please ensure that the work is completed before the 30th September, after which the Constables and Douzeniers will carry out the required inspections.

As a little reminder, the hedges and trees must be cut up to a height of twelve foot from the road (where the road is ordinarily used by vehicular traffic) or eight foot (where the road is not ordinarily used by vehicular traffic).

All cuttings must be removed from the roads and pavements immediately after cutting, those left can lead to blocked drains, flooding, and can be a danger to road users.

Watercourses should be cleaned, obstructions cleared to allow free flow, and banks should be repaired.

Should you fail to carry out the required work, a warning notice may be issued, including a description or indication of the alleged failure. After such a notice, you would have seven days to remedy this failure, at which time the issues highlighted will be re-inspected – please contact the office at your earliest opportunity if you have any questions or wish to discuss the alleged failure with one of the inspectors. If the work has still not been completed after this time, you shall be liable to a civil penalty of £50, which shall increase by £5 per day, for every day in which the failure continues.

You can find more information on the changes to the Law here:
