MSP welcomes launch of Bill

ANGUS South MSP Graeme Dey has welcomed the launch of a Members’ Bill in the Scottish Parliament by North East SNP MSP Mark McDonald.

The new Bill looks to bring legislation into force to tackle the issue of nuisance high hedges by domestic properties.

Mr Dey said: “High hedges and the associated disputes which they can potentially cause is an issue which has been of concern for a considerable period of time.

“I am very pleased that Mark McDonald has brought forward this proposed piece of legislation.

“I am keen to see it follow its way through the parliamentary process.”

He continued: “This is an excellent opportunity for people in Angus who have experienced this problem to contribute to the bill as it is consulted on and scrutinised by MSPs.

“I would encourage anyone affected to submit evidence they feel is important to the Local Government and Regeneration Committee in Parliament, as the bill is pored over at the committee stages.”
