BUSH BOTHER: Abbots Langley resident raises concerns over ‘dangerous’ untrimmed greenery

 Published on: 29th June 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

An Abbots Langley man is complaining about the state of the trees and bushes on his road, saying they have been left to grow unchecked for around five years.

The resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, lives on The Graylings. He states that when he first moved to the road, pruning took place around twice a year. But for the last five years, the greenery has allegedly been left to grow uncontrolled.

Speaking to ABBOTSnews, he said: “The county council has been out to inspect the trees and bushes, but states there is nothing to be done!

“The bush on the corner of The Graylings and The Fairway is particularly dangerous, as it is impossible to see either as a pedestrian trying to cross the road or as a motorist.

“This is also a shortcut to Tanners Wood JMI School, so in the morning and early afternoon, it can get really busy.

“I am concerned that there is going to be a serious accident if this bush is not cut down. I cannot remember the last time any work was done in The Graylings – probably at least five years ago.”

Abbots Langley and Bedmond Ward councillor Sara Bedford said: “It is disgraceful that Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) refuses to take any action to sort out the problems of overgrown vegetation here and elsewhere in the area.”

HCC has been contacted for comment.
