Isle of Wight Council

Hedge Cutting

About Hedge Cutting Services

Island Roads are responsible for maintaining a small number of hedges on land adjacent to the highway.

These hedges are cut by Island Roads. All cuttings are removed from the footway and/or road after cutting. 

The maintenance of hedges that front the public highway are the responsibility of the owner of the land abutting the highway. This may be a private householder, a farmer, a company or the Council. Overgrown hedges cause safety problems to highway users, obstructing sight lines and causing potentially hazardous obstructions.

This service and further information is part of our development to improve our website and can now be found on our new beta website.
