Some success, thanks to the help of Stephen Cooper who is Works Manager at Aycliffe Town Council.
He kindly took over negotiations with DCC and Livin.
Livin then agreed that they are responsible for the outer hedge and the same day cut back part of the hedge for safety. They have also said that the hedge will receive more pruning before winter.
I hope that they just remove it, as it is totally unnecessary. Thanks to everyone who supported this action.
We can always be grateful to the Newton News to keep us updated on what is happening in our area and to air our views.
