hedge chopped

The previous post (17th March) by Mr Osborne strongly indicated this would be the outcome.

The compromise was that the hedge could be cut back to just 2 metres up from the ground rather than the full 7 metres. It’s still going to look ugly, but Mayor Guru says the council will try to mitigate that somehow. (Looking at this today, we think a spray paint job with a suitable shade of green would be enough to produce a mitigating effect.)
