High Hedges

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 8 November 2006

25. To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what guidance her Department gives to councils on charges to deal with complaints relating to high hedges under part 8 of the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003; and if she will make a statement. (99696)

Our advice on fees under the high hedges legislation is in paragraphs 5.13 to 5.16 of the guidance document ‘High Hedges Complaints: Prevention and Cure’. It indicates that each local authority is responsible for deciding whether, and at what level, to charge for dealing with complaints about high hedges.
