Re: Dog urine smells

Thanks for that cloudyeyes, I have looked at the act and it appears the council can do something about the smell, I will contact Environmental Health and ask for another visit to point out the problems.

I will keep you posted as to what happens.

Thanks again

Re: Dog urine smells

Cloudyeyes The property is freehold. The original builder was taken over by Persimmons Homes, I have asked for them in past about covenants on this estate which, I am led to believe are also attached to freehold properties, to be adhered to, unfortunately they are not interested and told me to seek ...

Re: Dog urine smells

Cloudyeyes They own the house (mortgaged at the moment), they don't speak to us or any other families in the cul-de-sac (there are 7 houses), we have other problems with them, some of which I have asked advice for on this forum. I had considered going to the police station to ask for advice as I con...

Re: Maximum fence height

Have you investigated the High Hedge Act? It applies to evergreen trees, in a hedge not separately, over two metres high. You may have neighbours with trees over this height, but Councils generally only apply it when requested to do so. COGGY I have been informed by the council to have them investi...

Re: Maximum fence height

hzatph Thanks for prompt reply, there are covenants on the front gardens which states they should be open plan, this was set by the original builder of the estate however I would think well over 40% of the householders have large shrubs and trees in their front gardens. The original builders where t...

Maximum fence height

I know the maximum hedge height for a fence in the back garden is 2m but what about the front garden? The reason I ask is because I am sick of paying a gardener to trim back the plants in the neighbours garden just so I can park my car on my drive. They are over 4m high at the moment. TIA Keepitlegal

Re: Fence maintenance

A top quality treated timber fence appropriately installed will not need treatment and the vulnerable points are underground anyway. Apart from obvious defects in the post, like a knot, the majority of timber posts will fail where they enter the ground - 'twixt air and water' - often below ground i...

Fence repairs

When the house was built approx 23 years ago there was ranch type fencing between the houses, the original owner of next door put up a large fence around his back garden to keep his Alsatian in. The original owners of our house would not help with the costs so he placed the posts on our side of the ...

Re: Calculation Of Active Hedge Height

TO with reference to: I find this difficult to believe as the Local Authority cannot require the removal of the shrubs or trees that comprise a high hedge, or works that would result in their death. Because my NFH does not own the land these shrubs are planted on that is why they have to be removed ...

Re: Calculation Of Active Hedge Height

twits It is an unfortunate fact of life that the truth often hurts, as I said accept the ruling. As for 'playing the disabled card' I am not sure as to what you mean? I have not used my disability to discredit you or your post, as for being rude to my NFH, the council have agreed with me and our oth...
