Trees and high hedges

Report a high hedge

You must try to settle a dispute about a high hedge informally before we can intervene.

You can make a complaint if the hedge is all of these:

  • 2 or more mostly evergreen or semi-evergreen trees or shrubs
  • over 2 metres tall
  • affecting your enjoyment of your home or garden because it’s too tall

Before making a formal complaint, please read this advice on complaining to a council from GOV.UK (link opens in new window).

Please note:

  • it costs £720 for us to consider your complaint
  • the fee is payable when you submit your complaint
  • you won't be able to submit your complaint until the fee has been paid
