Remember I am in Wales. Perhaps we do it differently.
My observations are only as it is done locally. I relish the thought of a member of the public walking up to the contractors on a country lane and telling them how to do their hedge and verge cutting! I would like to be there.
Some people put up notices asking the contractors not to mow the orchids, but it makes little difference.
I did not mean to imply that the Highways Agency actually did the work. That would be silly. I just meant to point out the different between the enlightened attitude of the Highways Agency in some areas and respects and local councillors.
