- Hedgerow Regulations
- High Hedges
The Heritage Team provides advice on and deals with all notifications to remove hedgerows. The Enforcement Team deals with High Hedges complaints, but the Heritage Team can provide advice on these issues.
- The Hedgerow Regulations 1997 allow us to protect important hedgerows, by controlling their removal through a system of notification – if you want to remove a hedgerow you should write in stating the reasons for removal with a plan showing the hedgerow in question. You should note that the regulations do not apply to hedgerows that are within or on a garden boundary.
