A high hedge is defined as two or more evergreen or semi-evergreen trees or shrubs in a line and at least two metres high. Under the high hedges legislation, any person can complain to the council if their reasonable enjoyment of their property is adversely affected by a high hedge. This includes the blocking of light.
