Roads Department, Tipperary Co. Council Issue Statement

Statement from the Department of Roads at Tipperary County Council.

The Roads Department of Tipperary County Council, wish to inform landowners that it has come to their attention that persons, latter purporting to be agents/contractors, are approaching farmers and other landowners, claiming that the Council has employed them to cut trees/hedges on behalf of the said Council. These rogue agents are also seeking payment for any work undertaken.

Tipperary County Council wish to make it clear to the public that it has absolutely no involvement, whatsoever, with these persons and has not employed their services in any capacity. They further point out that it is up to each individual landowner to arrange to cut their own trees/hedges.

If any member of the public should come across such so called agents, they are asked to report the matter immediately to Gardaí.

Should members of the public wish to receive further clarification on the above, please contact Tipperary County Council at Tel: 0761 06 5000, to discuss the matter further.

Note: All landowners and occupiers of land should note that Section 46 of the Wildlife (Amendment) Act 2000 prohibits the cutting, of hedges and ditches during the period March 1st to August 31st each year; thus ensuring the safety of birds and other wildlife.
