Visites du Branchage
The second Visites will take place in each Parish from 1 September 2022. All persons, including co-ownership associations (for flying freehold properties) and companies (for share transfer properties) who occupy houses, lands, and other properties, alongside the public roads must:
(a) cut forthwith the overhanging branches growing from their properties along those public roads in such a way that there is a height of 12 feet free beneath the branches over the entire width of those roads (including their “reliefs”) and a height of 8 feet free over the footpaths; and
(b) remove the branches that have been cut off as well as brambles, weeds and all other obstructions and deleterious matter that encroach on the public road or footpath.
Persons who fail to comply with these requirements shall be liable to a financial penalty not exceeding £100 for each infringement.
