Trees on development sites
Hedgerows on non-domestic land – around fields and along roadsides – are usually protected by the Hedgerow Regulations 1997. See The Hedgerows Regulations 1997 (legislation.gov.uk) for more information. Hedges around and within gardens are normally exempt from the Hedgerow Regulations.
If you want to remove a section of such hedgerow, please visit the Planning Portal to apply.
