Tree and Hedge Guidance

The West Sussex County Times recently had a somewhat helpful article on this topic. The WSCT article links, in turn, to a section of the WSCC website which is rather less useful since its focus is on what WSCC is meant to do rather than what is expected of private landowners. Luckily, Dorset County Council has produced a model flyer on the topic which is worth downloading (the illustration above comes from that flyer).

Dripping tap entails nine week road closure

Dogleg closure
The dog-leg that connects Poynings to the Saddlescombe Road is to be closed from Wednesday 11th January until .. Tuesday 17th March 2017 — according to the obvious nonsense circulated by Matt Davey, Director of Highways and Transport at WSCC.

Update 14th January: as of 5:00pm this afternoon, the road was open. That does not mean it will be open on Monday morning, though. Proceed cautiously.

Update 16th January: the road remains open, all contractor detritus removed.
