When you can appeal
Your council makes decisions about hedgerow notices.
You can appeal a decision if they’ve sent you either:
- a retention notice, saying you cannot remove a hedgerow
- a replacement notice, telling you to replace a hedgerow you’ve already removed
Only the person who made the application can appeal.
There’s no fee for appealing.
Deadline for appealing
You must appeal within 28 days of the date on the council’s notice.
When you can expect a decision
Once your appeal is validated, you’ll normally get a decision within 31 weeks.
