High Hedges Inspection following Remedial Notice

Subject: High Hedges Inspection following Remedial Notice
From: "HUDSON, Chris"

Over the last few years I have received a number of  requests from 
complainants as to why we don't annually inspect high hedges where a remedial 
notice has been issued. Clearly where it is known that the hedge owner 
repeatedly ignores the requirement of the Notice, an annual inspection might 
be  prudent for enforcement,  but as  far as I can ascertain, and having  
briefly looking through HH 'Prevention and Cure'  there appears to be no 
requirement for LA's to do this. Comment welcome from any LA Arb Officers out
