Volume 694: debated on Tuesday 24 July 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What assessment has been made of the workings of the regulations concerning tall hedges. [HL5006]

The Department for Communities and Local Government has carried out no formal assessment of the workings of the high hedges provisions in the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003, which came into force in June 2005. The Government are committed to a formal review of this legislation after it has been in operation for five years.
