High hedge legislation aims to overcome harm that is sometimes caused by a neighbouring High Hedge. The following leaflets provide information about the process:
- complaints prevention and cure advice
- over the garden hedge advice leaflet
- overview of high hedges services
The Communities and Local Government website contains detailed guidance on how you can resolve disputes about problem high hedges, without involving the council.
Asking the council to inspect a high hedge will incur a charge.
Hedges that hang over on to pavements blocking the way are a problem. The council can take action to ensure hedges are trimmed.
