Hedge Cutting

Following guidance from the NFU, RSPB & RHS the parish council will not be carrying out any hedge cutting throughout the villages between 1st April and 31st August unless the hedge, tree or shrub overhangs a highway or any other road or footway to which the public has access so as to endanger or obstruct the passage of vehicles or pedestrians, or obstructs or interferes with the view of drivers or vehicles or the light from a public lamp, overhangs a highway so as to endanger or obstruct the passage of horse-riders.

This is with the exception of the hedge which borders the Green alongside the High Street and Pebblemoor, this hedge will be cut following a thorough inspection for nesting birds.

The parish council asks parishioners to ensure that the planting around the boundaries of their properties does not cause a danger or inconvenience to others.

Edlesborough Parish Neighbourhood Plan

The work on the plan continues in earnest with Village Task Groups focused on determining the key issues of new housing, location and design criteria. The current information can now be found on the parish website.

Three Neighbourhood Plan ‘Open House’ events will take place in July to share the current status and to get feedback from parishioners on the proposals.

  • Tuesday July 5th at 7.30pm in Dagnall Village Hall
  • Saturday July 9th at 2.30pm in Edlesborough Memorial Hall
  • Monday July 11th at 7.30pm in Northall Village Hall

The information provided will cover the overall Plan proposals together with specific proposals for each of the three villages. Parishioners can attend any of the ‘Open House’ events as the information at each will be identical. Parish Councillors, Steering Group members and Village Task Group members will attend to provide information, answer questions and receive feedback.
