We're here to help, but to keep us all safe please only come to the office if necessary. Most of our services are available online but if you do need to see someone, please book an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Under the Hedgerows Regulations 1997, you will need to apply to North Norfolk District Council if you want to remove a hedgerow.
If you want to remove a hedgerow on or alongside agricultural land, common land (including town or village greens), land used for forestry or the breeding or keeping of horses, ponies or donkeys, or protected land (Local Nature Reserve/SSSI) you will need to apply to North Norfolk District Council.
The Application for Hedgerow removal Notice (1APP application form 21), along with Planning Portal help text and application validation requirements, can be downloaded from our Planning Application Forms page. You can make an online application through the Planning Portal.
