Important Hedgerows

This legislation is separate from the consideration of ‘high hedges’.

Certain hedgerows are affected by the Regulations – generally hedgerows in the countryside (but not hedges within or bordering a garden).

The way in which the Regulations apply to individual hedgerows is quite complex. If a hedgerow is affected by the regulations, then permission may be required to remove all or part of it.  You should therefore discuss a proposal to remove hedgerows in the countryside informally with the Council’s Tree Preservation Order Assistant at an early stage before formally seeking permission.

If a hedgerow is removed without permission, you could be liable for a fine and may also have to replace the hedgerow.
