Chartridge Parish Council

Working for the best interests of our residents 

With surprisingly few exceptions, the hedges in the Parish are privately owned and it is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that hedges are clear of footpaths and highways, particularly where a safe view to the road is key. We politely ask that all our residents take due care of their hedges. If you have difficulty maintaining yours we will gladly put you in touch with a local contractor, if you have a query about a roadside hedge that is poorly kept - please contact the Clerk

As the County Council strives to further devolve services out to the communities, the Parish Council is aware that many services are now reduced. The cutting of roadside verges in an area where cost savings may be made, although vision splays will still be maintained. Many of our residents mow the roadside verges adjacent to or outside their properties. The Parish Council do notice this and are truly grateful to see grass being maintained in this way and thank you. Please keep it up!

We have recently seen an increase in fly tipping within the Parish. Bucks County Council now has a team dedicated to tracing those responsible for fly tipping, they rely on evidence found within the rubbish and forensics to identify the culprits. All reputable contractors will have a Waste Licence that allows them access to the local rubbish tips where their waste will be disposed of responsibly. When employing contractors it is a good idea to ask how they will dispose of rubbish when carrying out work for you. If fly tipping can be traced back to you - you will be held accountable.
