It is the responsibility of the property or land owner to ensure hedges are cut back sufficient amounts to ensure there is no overgrowth growing into the adopted footway or carriageway.
It is also the property or land owners responsibility to ensure all clippings are removed following cutting.
Should the Vale of Glamorgan Council need to arrange for a third party contractor to remove any clippings following cutting, then the costs incurred by the Council will need to be recharged back to the property / land owner.
Please note: If cutting back private hedges would disturb wild birds, we may allow the owners to delay the work until the bird nesting season is over. This is because there are laws against disturbing wild bird nests.
