High hedges

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.
