High Hedges

Managed and maintained to an acceptable height 

High Hedges

The High Hedges Bill was introduced on 1st June 2005 under Part 8 of the Anti Social Behaviour Act 2003. The legislation was introduced to ensure that hedges are managed and maintained at an acceptable height.

Tree Surveys undertake site visits to collect and collate all the relevant information, including:

  • Species, age and dimensions
  • Action height calculation
  • Shade analysis, obstruction of light
  • Privacy and Shelter
  • Visual amenity
  • Overhanging branches or litter dropped by the hedge
  • Scope of works and specifications
  • Initial and preventative action

We can provide an arbitration service to support all those parties involved, gathering information relating to the dispute. The final report will provide a detailed appraisal of the hedge and suitable management options. It is the responsibility of the LPA to make a Remedial Notice if required following the formal complaints process.
