« BackCouncillor urges county to be proactive with overgrown hedges

Patrick Connor Scarteen 1Overgrown hedges and trees on our roadsides are a serious and dangerous road hazard.

That’s according to Councillor Patrick Connor-Scarteen, who presented the motion at a monthly meeting of Kerry County Council.

Cllr Connor-Scarteen said, while the policy is in place to tackle this problem, there needs to be a more targeted implementation to ensure compliance.

He added that having one roads enforcement officer for the entire county is not enough.
