COVID 19 - DEVELOPMENT SERVICES: SITE VISITS UPDATEStroud District Council Planners have now resumed site visits where social distancing can be complied with.
Please read the full update under Coronavirus.
Resolving an issue
If you feel that you are being negatively affected by a high hedge on neighbouring land then you should in the first instance work with your neighbours to resolve the issue.
Making a complaint
As a last resort under the high hedges legislation, any person can complain to the council if their reasonable enjoyment of their property is adversely affected by a high hedge.
However you must first have tried and exhausted all other avenues for resolving their hedge dispute.
Part 8 of the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003, gives local authorities powers to deal with complaints about high hedges.
For more information and/or for a complaints form, please contact the planning department.
