High Hedge Act

Sam Andrew made this Freedom of Information request to North Yorkshire County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

North Yorkshire County Council did not have the information requested.

Dear North Yorkshire County Council,

Do you have such a thing as a High Hedge procedure used to adjudicate how High Hedge applications are processed in England.

Currently we are having some difficulties with this Act in Scotland and I would be most grateful to understand how it is being applied south of the border to ensure lessons are learned if they can be north of the border.

Yours faithfully,

Sam Andrew

North Yorkshire County Council
