High Hedges Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Section 6 - Withdrawal or relaxation of requirements of remedial notice

This section provides a council with the power to withdraw a remedial notice or waive or relax its requirements.  This can be done either before or after a remedial notice has taken effect.  If it does, subsection (3) requires that the council must notify every complainant and the owner/occupier of the neighbouring land.  The withdrawal of a remedial notice does not prevent the council from issuing a further remedial notice in respect of the same hedge.
