Japanese Knotweed – Not a very Social Weed!

By James Russell In Construction, Insurance No comments

You may feel that the sort of people charged with anti-social behaviour would be perhaps rather drunk, perhaps aggressive, or maybe even threatening?

Well, think on. If you have Japanese Knotweed on your premises that then spreads to neighbouring properties because it is not controlled, you could face anti-social behaviour charges under a 2014 amendment to the act.

Anyone who has ever had the misfortune to come across Japanese Knotweed knows the damage that it can do and how difficult it is to get rid of. Specialist contractors need to be brought in to remedy the problem and it takes many years to get to the point where you can be sure that the hardy weed is gone and is not coming back!
