High hedges and hedge removal
The Council deals with High Hedges throughout the District. The control only applies to evergreen or semi-evergreen hedges over two metres high and the Council can only accept a complaint when reasonable steps have been made to resolve the issue. A fee of £527 applies and a complaint form has to be completed. Further information is available from the National Planning Portal.
High Hedge Complaint Form, and the Complaint form guidance notes [126kb].
A hedgerow removal form is also available together with the National Planning Portal guidance notes and the NFDC checklist of requirements for an application for hedgerow removal notice.
