Neighbouring trees and vegetation
Under the Anti-social Behaviour (High Hedges) Act the council can, at the request of a resident, determine the height at which a hedge must be maintained. To qualify hedges must meet the following criteria:
- Species must be evergreen or semi-evergreen
- Two or more crowns must meet
- The hedge must be over 2m in height
We will only take on cases if you can demonstrate that all other efforts to resolve a dispute have been exhausted.
The fee for conducting a determination is £650.
