star this property answer text <p>We have not made an assessment of the effectiveness of the Weeds Act 1959 across the UK. Natural England (the delegated authority for investigating complaints about injurious weeds) monitors compliance with the Act through the collection of data such as the number of enforcement notices issued per year.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>There were 37 enforcement notices in 2013. However, we encourage communications between landowners and complainants to try and resolve any issues informally.

star this property answer text <p>The Weeds Act 1959 extends and applies to England, Scotland and Wales. It does not extend to Northern Ireland. The subject area of the Act is devolved in relation to Scotland and Wales, and those devolved administrations will have their own approach to injurious weeds under the framework of the Act.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has no plans to repeal the Weeds Act 1959 at this time. Defra’s injurious weeds policy aims to balance a variety of different interests in the countryside.</p> more like this
