These notes provide clarification on the role of the Local Government Ombudsman and where work may be required to deciduous parts of high hedges:
- matters relating to the issue of remedial notices
- reminders of the importance of accurately defining the hedge
- calculating the height of the hedge to be required by the remedial notice and
- specifying the works in the notice
These notes should be considered as a supplement to the existing guidance contained in High hedges complaints: prevention and cure.
