Does a beech hedge count as an 'evegreen hedge' under the Antisocial behaviour Law that you mention?
The beech hedge was planted some 10 years ago by neighbours along our southern boundary and 3-4 ft in front of our living room windows. We were assured it would not get high. 2 sets of neighbours later and these people do not cut it regularly. It is over 12 ft in places and significantly shades the garden. they say they will cut it but only to about 6 ft rising to 7 or 8 . [ they want to keep the top of the hedge horizontal although the ground drops away.] I have offered to cut it for them for nothing and have asked if we can buy the strip in front of our windows but they have refused.
What can we do?
