High Hedges

Can the Council do anything about a high hedge?

Legislation passed in 2005 gave Councils power to act in cases where an evergreen hedge is over 2 metres in height, acts as a barrier to light or access and affects the enjoyment of your property.

However, you must show that you have done everything you can to resolve the problem yourself before contacting us.

We can only deal with your complaint after you have done all you can to agree a solution yourself. You will need to complete a High Hedges complaint form and pay a fee of £300.
