States' reminder for cleaning streams published

Sun 04 Sep 2022

An early reminder has been released by the States Trading Supervisory Board that island streams need to be cleaned and an unrestricted flow of water ensured by the end of the month.

The full list (above) was published in La Gazette Officielle on Saturday and is also a reminder that hedges need to be cut back by the end of the month as well.

By law, this means trimming hedges and trees so that they do not overhang the public road up to the height of 12 ft from the road (where the road is ordinarily used by vehicular traffic) or 8 ft from the road (where the road is not ordinarily used by vehicular traffic).

All cuttings must be cleared immediately. It is the responsibility of the land owner to keep all hedges and trees trimmed and under control throughout the year, not just at inspection time.

Vale Douzeniers will be inspecting douits and hedges after the 30th.
