Scothedge, the group which represents people whose lives have been blighted by overgrown hedges, trees and shrubs, has had its campaign highlighted by the Dunfermline Press.
Scothedge is calling for people in Fife to play their part in helping to convince the Government to bring in new legislation to tackle the problem.
Among the hundreds of members are families who have suffered threats, property damage and loss of property value as a result of the problem, dubbed “hedge rage”.
Yet there are virtually no legal safeguards for the victims and nowher they can turn.
The Scottish Government has launched a three-month consultation process asking scores of relevent groups as well as interested members of the public to give their opinions.
Members of the group hope as many people as possible will back their action plan for a dedicated team of experts to settle disputes across Scotland.
A similar scheme was introduced in England and Wales and now resolves more than 400 cases per year.
