Hedges and Hedgerows
How to report a overgrown hedge or hedgerow and who is responsible
If you have noticed a hedge or hedgerow that is blocking a path or road, you can report it online, here. If it's something we look after, we'll investigate.
You can find further information about our grass cutting schedules and verges, here.
Removing a Hedge or Hedgerow
You may need to submit an Application Form for Hedgerow Removal to our Planning Service, and obtain permission before you start. There are Help Notes to assist you in completing this application form.
You can find further information about the protection and management of hedgerows on the GOV.UK Countryside Hedgerows guidance webpage.
