The Hedgerows Regulations 19971 prevent or inhibit the removal of hedgerows growing in or adjacent to common land, a nature reserve, a site of special scientific interest or land used for agriculture, forestry, or the keeping of horses, ponies or donkeys. The Regulations apply where a hedgerow has a continuous length of at least 20 metres (or if less than 20 metres must meet by intersection or junction another hedgerow); and they do not apply to hedgerows within or marking the boundary of a domestic curtilage2.
The local planning authority has power to prevent the removal of an 'important hedgerow'
