Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Update: It has been awhile, but I wanted to wait until everything was complete before commenting. Quick recap: a row of 40ft trees, 30m in length on my land bordered an agricultural field. A developer was going through the planning process to build homes in the field, 3 of which would border my land...

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

I think this topic has run its course, yet I feel obliged to clear a few things up... I am unwilling to give away too many specifics on a public forum and therefore you will not know all the facts. Frustratingly for me, this means Mac, mr sheen and jdfi will not know the extent of your misjudgement....

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Who are BRE?

I wouldn't describe the colour as yellow/green. It is closer to the colour of grass with some hints of blue/green.

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Hi Mac, We don't know for sure. We had the trees surveyed when we bought the house and the surveyor recorded them as "Cupressus Macrocarpa". However we have receipts from the previous owner's pruning which listed them as Firs and Cypress (there is only one species as far as I can tell). The recent T...

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Hi Mac, The spacing between trees at a height of 1.5m, between centre of the trunks varies from approx 0.8m to 1.5m. At heights above 2 metres, the spread of each tree overlaps the spread of the next. The trees' foliage is not overly dense, there are gaps across the whole length and height. I would ...

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Hi Mac,
That's an interesting point that I haven't come across. Mostly, with the exception of some thin, sparse, green twigs, these trees are trunk from base to around 2m. Certainly on my side. On the field side there are more low level branches with foliage.

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

My first reading of government documents https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/hedge-height-and-light-loss indicates that if your 'high hedge' is directly south of them 12 metres away for simplicity then the 'action height' enforced would be 12 x 0.25 - only 3 metres :shock: ? Hi arsie, I also...

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Hi Mac, Light level readings are a good idea and might indicate at what height (if any) there is a significant improvement in the levels of light. UPDATE: I have now seen the plans, and as expected the properties are quite close to the hedge, between 10 and 15m from hedge to principle window. The pl...

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Now that the planning application is lodged It's a short waiting game. Only the Notice is available at this moment. Plans and application details will hopefully be available by the end of the week. Is there any particular reason you think they might? A surveyor that is known to us and was contract ...

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Hi VG, if you are contemplating that your new neighbours are likely to prefer not to live beside a row of 35-40ft conifers then I must ask - why do you think it is likely? Kind regards, Mac Hi Mac, Are you asking, why would a new neighbour buy a property next to the larger conifers and then complai...

Re: Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Thank you all for responding. The question is hypothetical / preventative. The specifics are: I own a row of row 35-40ft evergreen fir trees on my northern boundary. Currently the parcel of land adjacent to my northern boundary is agricultural without a dwelling, thus does not qualify to make a comp...

Multiple High Hedge Complaints

Hi, Can anyone advise on how local authorities are required to deal with multiple high hedge complaints? As I understand it; as a last resort a complaint can be made to the council, the council can rule that (for example) a 35 ft hedge be reduced to 20 ft. It is still over 2 metres high. Assume the ...

Re: Charges Register on Title, but no details ??

Hi arborlad, There is a tedious connection to that thread. In summary, my land, land no2(the land referred to here) and land no3 are servient lands to land parcels 981 and 982 from that other thread. The recent development is, owner of land no2 thinks he also has access through my land to land no2. ...

Re: Charges Register on Title, but no details ??

Perhaps it does. The exact wording is quoted below, I'm just not sure if NOTE 2 is referring to this conveyance or not. 3 (13.06.1996) The land is subject to the rights excepted and reserved by a Conveyance thereof dated 23 April 1965 made between (1) Arthur Kershaw Brown and Elizabeth Anderton Brow...

Charges Register on Title, but no details ??

Hi all, I'm not sure if Boundaries is the best topic for this, but it should find the right audience here. I have acquired the Title Register for a parcel of land. In the Charges Register there are 2 charges which make sense 1: the land is subject to a right of access, to two other land parcels, the...
