High Hedges

The council deals with complaints about high hedges blocking light into neighbouring property. 

Make a High Hedge Complaint

The High Hedges Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 gives local authorities in Northern Ireland the powers to deal with complaints about high hedges that block light to a neighbour’s property.

This means that if a neighbour makes a complaint about the height of your hedge, we have the authority to serve you with a notice to cut it down to a reasonable height.
