The Right of Appeal

Both the complainant and the occupier/owner of the neighbouring land can appeal.

Grounds for Appeal

The recipient can appeal the decision on the following grounds:

  • Height is not adversely affecting amenity
  • Remedial and/or preventative action is excessive
  • Compliance period too short

The complainant can appeal on:

  • Remedial and/or preventative action is insufficient


Failure to comply with the requirement of a notice within the compliance period, or to comply with any preventative action within the period stated, by any owner or occupier, is a summary offence punishable with a fine of up to £1000.
