  • Northumberland County Council Update-
    We have investigated the issue reported and found that it is on private land. However,
    we do have powers under Section 154 (1) of the Highways Act 1980, to advise the
    owner/occupier of adjoining land they are required to cut back vegetation so as to
    remove the cause or likelihood of danger, obstruction or interference to the users of the
    Highway (footpath). In most cases the vegetation is cut back very quickly by the owner/
    occupier, but in some instances this can be a lengthier process but be assured we will
    follow due process to ensure the work is carried out.
    Thank you for bringing this to our attention
