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 in the process, as does the neighbours loss of light. It's a balancing act which the Council will never get right so long as they're having to reach a decision that one party will disagree with.

The use of conifer and other evergreen trees/shrubs as a boundary screen will always be fraught with the potential for action. This is one of the reasons I much prefer bamboos as a boundary screen. Choose the right variety and you can fill most spaces to the height desired

As said you do need to get hold of the planning permision because i will bet the hedge was a material fact in PP being granted and the developer now wants to have it both ways
