Felling/Trimming Trees On Parish Council Land
In line with procedures set out by Central Bedfordshire Council, it is the Parish Council's policy NOT to top, lop or fell otherwise healthy trees that would otherwise need no maintenance to alleviate problems such as the build of leaves, seeds, berries or other minor debris on a neighbouring property to ... allow more light to a property, where the trees in question would not otherwise require any surgery, improve television or satellite reception, prevent roots entering already broken pipes. If a tree/hedge does not have birds nesting or if a tree does not have a tree preservation order, we can only work on it if there is a health and safety risk or the tree is diseased. However, residents are entitled under law to cut back to the boundary line any branches/hedging overhanging their property line.
NO advertising on Parish Council land without prior consent from Eaton Bray Parish Council, the Council will remove any unauthorised advertising within the parish.
