The Hedgerows Regulations 1997

Table of Contents

The regulations provide important protection by prohibiting the removal of most countryside hedgerows (or parts of them) without first notifying the local planning authority (LPA). If the hedgerow is 'important' according to criteria set out in the Regulations, the LPA may prohibit its removal by issuing a retention notice. Further information at:

A hedgerow removal notification form and associated guidance can be downloaded from our planning applications forms section.
