LOCAL INFORMATION

11.8.52.L8
Control of high hedges (including Cupressus Leylandii)

Extent: Jersey
February 2003
Updated 11 November 2013
---------------------------------------------------

The High Hedges [Jersey] Law came into force on the 11th January 2008. A copy of the Law can be found at www.jerseylaw.je/Law/display.aspx?url=lawsinforce%2fconsolidated%2f22%2f22.200_ HighHedgesLaw2008_RevisedEdition_1January2009.htm

Complainants need to demonstrate that they have made approaches to the hedge owner to resolve a high hedge dispute and should keep records of any approaches made. The fee that must accompany a complaint made to the Minister for Planning and Environment is £350.

Guidance ,published by the UK Government ,entitled "Hedge Height and Light Loss" is already available and will be used by the Minister for Planning and Environment to assess whether high hedges are problematic. The guidance can be accessed at www.gov.uk/government/publications/hedge-height-and-light-loss
