Lleylandi Hedges Anti-Social
The Anti-Social Behaviour Bill was set up to stop, well, anti-social behaviour. Leylandii hedges that grow and grow ridiculously high can certainly be anti-social as far as neighbours are concerned.
The problem can be getting local councils to act. The law now Councils should only be approached after neighbours have "tried and exhausted" every other means of resolving the dispute.
Legally the councils can`t act until hedges are above two metres in height before neighbours can make a complaint. And there is a big variation of charges by councils for acting on complaints, from nothing to hundreds of pounds. Another example of the UK`s postcode lottery.
