Removing hedgerows

Hedgerows on non-domestic land, around fields and along roadsides are usually protected by the Hedgerow Regulations 1997. 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.
