Hedge between garden and paddock

Post by hzatph » Tue Apr 12, 2005 9:43 am

We have a former farmhouse and a paddock. Our garden is separated from the paddock in part by a hawthorn hedge and we wish to remove some of this hedge - about 15m. My question is whether we need planning or other permission to do this.

My interpretation of the hedgerow regulations (http://www.hmso.gov.uk/si/si1997/97116001.htm) is that 3(3) applies as this is a stretch marking the boundary of the curtillage of a dwelling house and so these regulations do not apply.

I need to explain that we are not in a conservation area and there is no change of use of the paddock involved. There are no trees within the hedge so tree protection orders are not relevant.

If you need any further information please just ask.

Many thanks in anticipation.
