SEASONAL REMINDER TO LANDOWNERS

In the interest of road safety,  landowners are reminded to ensure that trees,  hedges or other vegetation are maintained in such condition that they are not a hazard to road users.  And that they do not interfere with the maintenance of the public road.

 

In particular,  branches which jut out onto the road,  including the footpath,  should be cut back.  Dead and unsafe trees should be removed and hedges should be cut and trimmed.

 

It is recommended that professional advice on the conditions of roadside trees should be obtained from time to time.

 

When landowners are maintaining hedges or trees,  all reasonable care should be taken to ensure the safety of road users while the work is being carried out.  All cuttings should be removed so that roadside drains are kept clear.

 

All necessary work should be carried out by 29 February, 2017.

In order to comply with the Wildlife Acts.

Maintenance of roadside vegetation by landowners is a requirement of the Roads Act.

Wicklow County Council will be taking a proactive approach in enforcing legislation.
