30 July 2021Overhanging Foliage eg Trees & Hedges
Concerns have been raised about obstructive foliage in our area.
The following gives information on how far back hedges, trees etc should be cut back - https://www.gardeningdata.co.uk/shrubs/hedges_and_roads/hedge_trim_highway.php
If overhanging foliage is a problem it can be raised directly with the owner of the relevant property.
If this is not appropriate or does not work then it can be reported on the CEC website.-

27 May 2021Update on Dell Bridges in response to motion raised by Cllr Gavin Corbett
In response to my motion, at the meeting today, it was confirmed that a report would be going to the Culture and Communities Committee on 15 June with a recommended investment programme in green spaces; and that both bridges and associated paths are on that programme. Importantly, that report will put both bridges into the core funding programme from the council. Although local community councils and Water of Leith Conservation Trust had signalled an appetite to lead a community fundraising and volunteer effort to tackle the Pipe Bridge, that will now rightly be a core project for the council.
So good news! I shall be following up with officers to ensure that the work is programmed as quickly as possible. But at least now the impasse seems to be clearing after far too long.
