Commencing a case

To commence a case you will need to use one of the application forms listed in the table below. The application form that you will need to use will depend on the class and type of case you are commencing, for example, if your dispute is about a hedge you would use the 'Tree Dispute Application' as well as the Tree Dispute Claim Details (High Hedges) form. The basis on which a court form can be used in proceedings in the Land and Environment Court is found in the Chief Judge's Approval of Forms, which is made pursuant to s 77A(1) of the Land and Environment Court Act 1979.

Detailed information on how to start a case, including the right form to use, see Types of cases.​​
