High Hedges (Scotland) Act 2013

High hedge notices

Section 2 – Application for high hedge notice

7.This provision allows an owner or occupier of a domestic property to apply to the relevant local authority for a high hedge notice, if that person feels that the occupier’s reasonable enjoyment of the property has been adversely affected by the height of the hedge on land occupied by another person. This land does not necessarily need to share a boundary with the domestic property affected by the hedge, nor does it exclusively refer to other domestic properties.
