Hedgerow removal

If you wish to remove any hedgerow growing in, or adjacent to, certain types of land you will need to tell us using a Hedgerow Removal Notice.

Types of land affected include any common land, protected land, or land used for agriculture or forestry. It also applies to land used for breeding or keeping horses/donkeys, nature reserves and areas of scientific interest.

The hedgerow regulations do not apply to any hedgerow within the boundary of a private property.

If you would like to find out who owns a certain hedgerow or need further advice please contact the Conservation Team using the details below.
