  • Thank you for your enquiry. There are no statutory or common law rights to light for a private landowner as relates to the presence of trees. OCC look at each individual enquiry to determine if any statutory works are required which may alleviate the situation. Unfortunately, on this occasion no statutory works are appropriate on the tree as described in the enquiry.

    Many thanks for your enquiry.
