Trees and Hedges on the A645

Residents will recall that following concerns with regard to the overgrown hedges and trees on the A645, the Parish Council has been liaising with DRAX on the matter.
We are pleased to report that Cllrs have now received confirmation from Drax that they will maintain the hedges and trees along the A645 (which of course will be carried out, outside of the bird nesting season).
However they are unable to cut overhanging branches into residents gardens as they were sued by a resident for damage caused when a tree was previously pruned and branches fell into the residents garden. In light of this, they are no longer able to obtain insurance for this aspect of the tree management.
The Parish Council is satisfied with this outcome which it feels is entirely reasonable in the circumstances and therefore Cllrs agreed to close this matter at the May meeting.
