Council cuts that defend hedge dwellers | Letter

In reply to Sue Boase’s letter (Spare that hedgerow and save our wildlife, 10 September), it has been the coverage of county councils everywhere in the nation for at the very least 20 years to not minimize roadside hedges in any respect between March and November, principally to accommodate nesting birds, but it surely additionally covers many of the autumn meals for them.

Nonetheless, the job of truly doing the slicing is contracted out, usually to native farmers, who need to get lots of hedges accomplished so generally begin earlier. They haven’t learn the coverage paperwork.

If this occurs in your space, telephone, e mail or write to the transportation division of the related county council (it can have a web site with all of the division contacts). The county biodiversity officer and ecologist (in the event that they nonetheless have them after the cuts) might be in your facet, however transportation is increased up the pecking order due to “street security”. As I’ve to pay the native farmer for slicing my hedges, I inform him when he can not do it.
