Hedge cutting

Posted on Updated on

Banbury towpath before

I know that many of you are concerned about the hedge cutting and the restricted width of the towpath.  I have written to Dan Barnett, C&RT, but have yet to receive a program or plan of action for the S.Oxford with regards to the hedge cutting.

I find this particularly frustrating and would like C&RT to provide something more definite in the way of how much of the extra growth is to be cut back and what will be done about the hedge height.  Currently I have received nothing but verbal assurances that the program will commence or has commenced.

If anyone is out walking and they come across ‘Fountains’, who are the contractor employed by C&RT actually reducing width and height of the hedges, to take some photos of what the contractors are actually doing i.e. how much have they really cut back?
