It’s not a nature strip issue. The hedge is growing in the neighbour’s yard, along the side fence. It’s higher than a two-storey house and it blocks the light in the downstairs rooms.
I’ve pruned it back to the fence but the sheer height of the photinia still causes an issue for reaching the canopy.
There is apparently nothing ACT Government can do except offer a phone number for the conflict resolution service. Requests have been made, and help offered to the neighbour all to no avail.
Any suggestions? Is this possibly a matter for ACAT? Thanks.
