The High Hedges [Jersey] Law came into force on the 11th January 2008. A copy of the Law can be found at https://www.jerseylaw.je/laws/revised/Pages/22.200.aspx

 

If you have a problem with the height of a neighbour's hedge, you will need to show that you have made attempts to resolve the dispute with them. You should keep records of any conversations and approaches made. The fee that must be paid for a complaint made to the Minister for Environment is £350.

Guidance which has been published by the UK Government, entitled "Hedge Height and Light Loss" is already available and will be used by the Minister for Planning and Environment to decide whether a high hedge is a problem. You can see the guidance at www.gov.uk/government/publications/hedge-height-and-light-loss
