Overhanging vegetation

Overhanging VegetationDuring the growing season we ask you to make regular checks on your plants, hedges or trees to make sure that they are not growing over the pavement and forcing people to walk on the road.  If we have a complaint about this we often have to write to the householder which can cause offence but we do this in the interest of public safety on behalf of West Sussex County Council. 

If you have difficulty in getting past some vegetation please contact the Help Point on 01444 247726 or email:
