Highways England will shortly commence vegetation clearance work on the M5 embankment adjacent to Sussex Gardens, Hampton Close and Belmont Ave.
Overgrown vegetation is causing issues to some properties, this includes loss of light within gardens, brambles growing through and over fences and providing a potential habitat for pests and other species (including rats).
The clearance work will provide a 3m clearance zone from the highways boundary back towards the edge of the embankment, any overhanging branches will also be removed.
We met with Highways England on site to discuss the work and we were assured that no trees will be removed.
Following this work, we would kindly ask residents not to dispose garden waste and household rubbish over the boundary fence into the clearance zone.
If you have any queries about the proposed works or you require further information, please contact the Highways England Customer contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
