Dear Mr Hedges,
I enjoyed our talk the other day. I hope you enjoyed the lettuces from my patch!
I am sorry to write to you about what we spoke about then but I do need a response from you. I am only asking you please to discuss with me some lopping of your hedge by an agreed amount so as to allow some natural light to come into my living room, whilst preserving a height which will afford you all the privacy you reasonably require. Could we arrange another time to meet and discuss? I am advised that if we do not agree I can ask the Council to investigate which may result in their serving what is known as a Remedial Notice which would require you to reduce the height possibly as low as 2 metres. I do not want to invoke this procedure unless we absolutely cannot agree and I hope we can work together on this point.
Please give me a ring or email me. I look forward to hearing from you.
Happy hedge trimming!
