High hopes for lower hedges

Published 19/06/2008

Many Ulster people have for years had to put up with the problem of neighbours who have trees and high hedges on the boundaries of their properties.

They thought their problems were going to be solved when, in England and Wales, legislation was introduced to limit such growths to something like one and a half metres. Last year, the then Environment Minister, Arlene Foster, announced that similar legislation would be introduced here. Earlier this year I wrote to the Minister to inquire about progress only to learn that nothing had yet been done.

Now Sammy Wilson has taken over, can we expect early activity on this front?
