A hedge question

Post by sharon a » Fri Sep 22, 2006 9:38 am

I have a conservatory at the back of my house , does anybody know when measuring how far away a hedge is from property , whether you take it from the main house or the conservatory? Any answers appreciated

Wont that depend on why you need to know the distance? I would choose the measurement that best suited my purpose.

I thought you needed the distance to work out BRE guidlines for obstruction of daylight to windows . The conservatory is closer to the hedge , I just wondered if there were any rules from where the measurements are taken from.
