How you can help
If you have a hedge outside your property, make sure it does not obstruct or overhang any footpaths. Vegetation overhanging the highway is a hazard to people walking by and an obstruction to our staff trying to clean pavements. High hedges can also be a nuisance.
If you have a gravel driveway, make sure it does not encroach onto the public highway. Loose gravel is a hazard to people using the footpath and an additional pressure on the cleansing service.
Dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets can receive a fixed penalty notice.
Use a litter bin. If you are caught littering you could receive a fixed penalty notice.
