Parochial Appeals Tribunal

Share this page

The Parochial Appeals Tribunal is an independent body that determines appeals against some Parish level decisions relating to breaches of the hedge cutting and watercourse clearing obligations, as well decisions not to grant Bornements.

Please note that from early 2018 there will be an amendment to the Cutting of Hedges Ordinance that will make the owner (not the occupier) responsible for roadside hedges on their land. This will affect the June 2018 hedge cutting but not the September 2017 hedge cut. If you have any queries then your parish should be able to assist.
