Fencline against the open common

Reported via desktop in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) (NH) category anonymously at 10:03, Thu 25 August 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3779457.

This fenceline that draws the boundary against the open common grazed land of the New Forest looks to be coming to the end of it's life and might need some maintenance/replacement. I believe it is the responsibility of the external land owner to fence against the forest.
