Garden boundary enquiry service

If you require clarification on garden boundaries, please contact your local housing office

We will investigate and visit, providing you with a written reply enclosing a copy of the plan. Where required, we can measure garden boundaries.

Requests from tenants for clarification on garden boundaries should include reasons for the request.

  • If any adjoining properties are sold, a check on the ground space will be made.  If there is a dispute over the extent of the ground which has been sold, the matter should be referred to Legal Services
  • If there are no sold properties involved, residents of adjoining properties should be interviewed to try and establish an amicable division of ground. If no mutual agreement can be reached between both parties and the housing officer, the service manager shall decide on a fair division of ground.

A written reply giving full reasons for the decision and enclosing a copy of the plan should be sent within 10 working days.

Please use the 'contact us' box if you have any questions.
