Who is responsible for hedges & verges by highway?
Who is responsible for hedges & verges by highway? Sadly, people assume that if it is by a road or pavement that Cornwall Council has a duty to maintain. This is not true.
This link explains who is responsible for what and also what the Council does when it is responsible. Council responsibility for hedges and verges
Whilst I get many people contacting me to complain that a verge or hedge has not been cut or cleared, I get as many people contacting me to complain that the habitat for wildlife has been destroyed by the Council. One persons wildlife habitat is another persons untidy mess. Cannot make you all happy, sadly.
