Trees and High Hedges
Liberal Democrats are working to plant more trees and address the problem of unsightly, overgrown bushes and trees across the Borough. Mayor Dave Hodgson has increased the amount of funding for our tree maintenance from £1 to over £10 per tree ! We have received many requests from residents to have trees replaced around Brickhill which have been vandalised or died. We are extremely concerned to see the replacement of damaged trees and also increased planting of news trees across Brickhill.
Borough Councilllors Wendy Rider and Charles Royden have allocated thousands of pounds from their ward funds towards the planting of trees in Brickhill.

The attached leaflets are a useful guide to what can be done, from talking to your neighbour to asking the Council to take formal action to have the hedges reduced in height.
