This Act grants the right to an owner or occupier of a domestic property who considers that the height of a high hedge situated on land owned or occupied by another person adversely affects the enjoyment of the domestic property to apply to the relevant local authority for a high hedge notice. A relevant local authority must dismiss an application in specified circumstances. Where a relevant local authority decides under section 6(5)(b) that action should be taken, it must issue a high hedge notice as soon as is reasonably practicable after making 15 that decision. Where the high hedge to which a high hedge notice relates is situated on land which has been designated as a National Park, the authority must give the National Park authority for the National Park a copy of the high hedge notice. The tree preservation order has no effect in relation to the initial action or any preventative action specified in the high hedge notice. The local authority may take enforcement action.

Implemented by: High Hedges (Scotland) Act 2013 (Supplementary Provision) Order 2014 (S.S.I. No. 55 of 2014). (2014-02-26)

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
