Hedge cutting measures to be implemented for August
Fine Gael Senator Tim Lombard welcomed the passing of the Heritage Bill through the Seanad this evening.
Senator Lombard said the new law will enable road-side hedges to be cut during August.
Senator Lombard said: “I welcome the passing of this Bill this evening and I am hoping that the President will sign it in to law shortly so the measures of cutting hedges on roadsides can be implemented for the month of August
“This has been an issue for many years and this new proposal will increase safety for road users but also for pedestrians who want to enjoy our rural environment.
“This is a valuable and practical piece of legislation for rural communities across Ireland.”
