Planning enforcement will not get involved with neighbour disputes, investigation of land ownership, or boundary disputes (such as high hedges or boundary walls).
If you are involved in such a dispute, we advise that you try and resolve this dispute with your neighbour in a civil manner.
For more information on planning breach enforcement, please see the following link: https://www.wakefield.gov.uk/planning/enforcement/what-is-planning-enforcement-and-what-action-can-be-taken/
For information regarding high hedges please see the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/high-hedges
This is not a planning enforcement matter. This is a civil matter and we advise that you seek out independent-legal or professional advice.
Before you start, you will need to tell us:
- The type of planning breach that has occurred
- If this breach has been reported previously
- The exact location of the breach in question
