Does Wealden District Council have any powers concerning High Hedges?

No, measures concerning high hedges are expected to come into force no earlier than the end of 2004. When the new provisions are brought into force residential occupiers that submit formal complaint to the Local Authority regarding a neighbouring hedge, may be charged a reasonable fee for considering any such complaint. The Local Authority is only obliged to act if satisfied that the complainant has already taken all reasonable steps to resolve the matter with their neighbours.
