Re: School Boundary Trees

Trying to get a resolution via a 24 year old planning permission is a wild goose chase, as is everything else on the evidence we have. Even if the development wasn't in accordance with the permission the time for enforcement has long since past. And there's nothing in the decision that would have he...

Re: School Boundary Trees

Dear trying2doitright Despair is giving you false hope. In reality you have two choices; 1. Cut back to the boundary everything that encroaches over your side. 2. Negotiate a resolution with the school. The planning condition in relation to the landscaping scheme has expired. The reasoning that it s...

Re: School Boundary Trees

The LPA. But its not going to help you. The landscaping scheme is the minimum expected by the LPA, enforcement, if they haven't done it accordingly, is time limited, and they can plant what they like over and above the approved scheme on their land.

Re: Hawthorn tree straggling boundaries - conservation area

Cut back the Leylandii back to the boundary. You may need to notify the council if the Leylandii is in the conservation area. Ask the local Tree Officer.

Re: Gigantic bamboo on property boundaries

There's nothing you can do except discuss it with your neighbour and agree a solution.

Re: High Hedges Legislation

Hi Frede For height of floor level above ground level enter 0. The guidance previously provided makes it clear how to assess/measure the area of your garden affected by the hedge. Judicial Reviews are usually expected within six weeks. You can complain to the LGO but you will have to show maladminis...

Re: High Hedge Prosecutions

Would I be right in assuming that the council would only go and do the work and bill the owner after they had reminded him of the need to cut it and he then continued to ignore the Remedial Notice Yes. So long as the Hedge Owner was cutting the hedge following the Council's reminders do you think t...

Re: High Hedge Prosecutions

In my time in local authorities we never pursued a prosecution for non-compliance with a remedial notice. Neither have I heard of a council that has.. However, we did go and do the work and bill the owner. There's more than one course of action a council can take. It would have to be serious for the...

Re: High Hedge Act - unusual case needs advice

Either the owner or occupier can complain. But each individual dwelling would be treated as a seperate complaint. I imagine that it would be left to the occupiers to fund their own complaints. I can't imagine the owner will fund several individual complaints. Privacy is something that carries weight...

Re: High Hedges Legislation

There are always alternatives too the High hedge Legislation... Other than illegal acts, out of the question, discussing the issues and agreeing a compromise, tried to no avail, living with it, not what the OP wants, what are the alternatives. To get your right to light you have to demonstrate that...

Re: High Hedges Legislation

Hi Frede

Your neighbour is perfectly entitled to plant his hedge. Essentially your only recourse if you are not happy is a high hedge complaint.

Re: Removing Tree From a Planting Scheme

As the OP says that the tree is part of the tree planting scheme that means that it is part of the planning application. No it's part of the planning consent. It does not force anyone to put X species tree at position x for all time. Maybe, depends on the wording of the condition, or if the tree ha...
