ARC Arboricultural Solutions helps clients to make applications or notifications to a Local Planning Authority for works to, or the removal of a protected tree. We are experienced in making representations against the serving of a Tree Preservation Order, or in appealing an LPA decision for refusal of an application. ARC consultants can make your application for a Felling Licence.
Hedgerows are protected under the Hedgerow Regulations (1997). These generally apply to hedgerows over 20m in length, or connected at both ends to another hedgerow in a non-domestic setting.
The implementation of Hedgerow Regulations can be complex. For example, new access to paddock land may be granted Permitted Development Rights but if the access requires the removal of a hedge, an application to the Local Planning Authority may be required.
An ARC Arboricultural Solutions consultant can support you in making a hedgerow removal application or in establishing if you need to apply. We’ll manage the process for you, and carry out pre-application research if necessary.
