The High Hedges (Scotland) Act 2013 aims to provide a solution to the problem of high hedges where neighbours have not been able to resolve the issue amicably. The Act provides a means of resolving disputes over the effects of high hedges which interfere with the reasonable enjoyment of domestic property.
Where an owner or occupier can demonstrate that the hedge in question is a high hedge and that the hedge adversely affects the occupant's enjoyment of a domestic property they can apply to the council for a High Hedge Notice to be served on the owner of the hedge.
