Re: Gigantic bamboo on property boundaries

No - you're wrong. Has anyone ever got successful recompense for this sort of issue? Not sure which way you are approaching this from, there is no law to prevent leaves and other natural debris from falling onto someone elses land. If you throw a mustard seed over the boundary, the law considers it...

Surely not "flytipping" - just a case of putting THEIR property back onto THEIR land.

Re: High Hedges Legislation

Hi, did they go as far as to investigate your high hedge complaint and issue a decision notice? If so, your appeal would be to the Planning Inspectorate, see here: https://www.gov.uk/appeal-high-hedges-decision. If not, then it sounds like it was not validated in which case they should explain the r...

Re: 6 Metre Beech Hedge Blocking Light

the written contract and plans are the only relevant info...whatever sales patter you were given is then irrelevant and you make it clear that with full knowledge that you don't own the hedge/trees, you choose to proceed and buy a property with a 6m high trees owned by a neighbour and over which yo...

Re: High Hedge Act - unusual case needs advice

It doesn't matter unless they all fund their separate complaints, the council validate them and the council issue remedial notices. This combination of events although possible, is unlikely. The stumbling blocks are either the lack of will to dip into their own pocket to pay for the complaint (non r...

Re: High Hedge Act - unusual case needs advice

Hi APC, Thanks for the reply....yes it is Calderdale Council. There are 8 new houses altogether, 4 of them adjacent to my boundary and 4 adjacent to my neighbours (within the tree line). Do you know whether or not the housing developer (who still owns the houses and rents them out) can bring the co...

Re: High Hedge Act - unusual case needs advice

If this is Calderdale Council, their fee for high hedge complaints is £460. This will be per complaint. An individual complaint will cover one section of hedge/one property. Unless that has been paid by the complainant(s), the council has investigated the complaint and issued a remedial notice, you ...

Re: How much influence does a conservation officer have

Depends on the authority as to how much influence they have. However, as with other technical officers, they are employed to provide expert advice to planning officers so that they can come to a balanced, informed decision which reflects local and national policy. If you dont agree with the conserva...
