You can still edit if you wish, or 'report' the post you wish removed. Given the number of times your posts have been 'quoted', and vice versa, it would be time consuming for Admin. to achieve an equitable result.

Already, considerable editing of posts in this thread has occured after responses have been made by other posters. That strikes me as dishonest at best and wholly unnecessary.
Nice use of some subjective and emotive language.

For one who writes they are keen to stay on topic this surprises me.

Admin have asked that we use the <!> button to report any posts we think have broken the forum rules.

So I'm with pinkie in so far as all posts in this thread should remain.

Humble regards, Mac

PS pinkie, Admin do not agree that editing is "dishonest at best"

For posterity, this needs to be considered:

They did: You do not need planning permission for hedges taken from the Planning Portal as linked to by Pinkie, who is correct.
The actual wording is "You do not need planning permission for hedges as such"

Hi
You may need consent to remove a hedgerow. A blanket statement that you can remove hedges is likely to lead to misery for someone. I wouldn't rely on the Planning Portal as the font of all knowledge.

Hi TO,
and they don't need to receive a complaint before they can issue one.
For the record, my local planning office made it very clear during our conversation they would not take action unless prompted by a complaint - I made a point of asking the question outright and got a definitive answer.

But, as I tried to make clear in the post, this was only my LPO's view.

Kind regards, Mac
