Cutting back roadside hedges and trees

Private householders in residential areas (or farmers in rural areas) own the majority of hedges alongside the public highway. It is the responsibility of the private owner to ensure that trees or hedges are not overhanging or creeping onto the highway.

Overgrown hedges can cause many problems for road users ranging from obscuring visibility at junctions to inconveniencing pedestrians walking along pavements and footpaths. The county council is required by law to ensure that the highway remains unobstructed to avoid these problems.

Please check the hedges and trees from your property regularly during the growing season. The breeding season for nesting birds is March to August, and you may find that birds have already taken up residence in a hedge or tree. If you notice any birds or find a new nest you may wish to contact us for advice beforehand.

Highways Agency - Smart Motorways

Following the Highway Agency's construction works on the M25, between junctions 5-7 (section within Surrey) and 23-25, the road will be opened in spring 2014 to operate as ‘All Lane Running’ (all lanes open to traffic, with no hard shoulder). This is currently planned for May, subject to change, and is being carried out as part of a country-wide smart motorways campaign. You can find out more about this by looking at the Highways Agency’s website.
