Shrubs and hedges

Report an issue with overgrown shrubs and hedges.

To report an issue you will need a myaccount. This will allow you to request a range of services and keep track on the progress of your request.

We prune shrubs and hedges on our land or property between October and March. We don’t prune every shrub bed or hedge each year, however we do cut back any shrubs or hedges that are:

  • causing an obstruction to a footpath, cycle path, pavement or road
  • obscuring a sight line or sign
  • encroaching property

Hedges on private land, for example, farmland, will be passed to the relevant service for investigation.
