Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 7 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government when the revised operational guidelines for the High Hedges (Scotland) Act 2013 will be produced.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 15 March 2018

 Since welcoming the Local Government and Communities Committee’s report into the operation of the Act, I have instructed my officials to consult with partner organisations, including CoSLA and Scothedge, with a view to revising operational guidelines for the High Hedges (Scotland) Act 2013. This work is on-going and revised guidelines will be issued by the end of the year.
