Countryside Hedgerows

Rural hedgerows provide habitats for animals and connect humans to history. By law, we protect rural hedgerows in South Staffordshire from unnecessary removal.

In general, you must have permission before you remove a hedgerow in the countryside. You can apply online or download an application form.

For detailed information about hedgerows in the countryside, please visit the GOV.UK website.
