Knotweed in Bristol
Knotweed is not just a worry for home and business owners. Environmental concerns have never been far from Bristol’s heart, and in 2015 the city was the recipient of the European Green Capital Award. The spread of invasive plants threatens this. Knotweed damages the city’s infrastructure, breaking apart pavements, growing in streets, and damaging water and gas lines. Repair costs for local authorities can quickly escalate.
Homeowners with Japanese knotweed on their premises can struggle to sell their properties. Both mortgage lenders and potential buyers are put off by identified cases. This also applies to the buying and selling of properties for commercial use.
In addition to the repair costs associated with knotweed damage, property owners can be fined up to £2,500 if knotweed spreads from their premises to those of a neighbour. It is not illegal to have knotweed on your land, but it is illegal to allow it to spread.
The best way to avoid financial and legal costs is to contract a licensed Japanese knotweed removal specialist. A PCA-accredited expert with a 10-year insurance-backed guarantee is a reliable and effective way of treating your knotweed and eliminating the problem. For cases in and around the Bristol area, TP Knotweed can help.
