NYCC complaints and hedges

CONTACTING NORTH YORKSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL

North Yorkshire County Council is responsible for all our roads, footpaths, grass cutting, gritting, filling salt bins etc.

If any resident wishes to make any comment, complaint or just to report a problem then this can be done online at the NYCC website.

www.northyorks.gov.uk

In the “Search for it” box type in your topic and eventually you should find a “Report it” facility.

 

Hedgerows

These are the responsibility of the landowners. These days there are strict conditions which do not allow hedges to be cut during the bird nesting season (1st March to 31st July) unless there are obstructions to roads or paths. Landowners are not allowed to cut on an annual basis and are requested to leave cutting until February to ensure a greater supply of berries for the birds.

The Natural England website gives full details.
