« BackCouncil gets 400 complaints about overgrown hedges annually

Kerry County Council receives over 400 complaints annually in relation to overgrown hedgerows on the county’s roadways.


Under law, landowners are obliged to ensure hedges and trees are not a hazard to people using the public road. Responding to queries from Cllr Michael Cahill, the council said its Enforcement Officer receives in excess of 400 complaints each year in relation to the matter.
Notices are served on a landowner where a potential hazard exists.
Last month, the CEO of Kerry County Council, Moira Murrell said the local authority would be stepping up its enforcement of the legislation around the county.
