Make a complaint about rabbits causing significant crop damage on your land.
This form should be used if you’re suffering significant crop damage caused by rabbits coming from neighbouring land, and your neighbour is refusing to control them. Occupiers of land in a rabbit clearance area (the whole of England except the City of London and the Isles of Scilly) must prevent rabbits on their land from causing damage elsewhere.
The guidance sheet above provides information for land managers about their obligations and the help they can receive to control rabbits.
Make a complaint
To make a complaint, complete the form and send it to Natural England at the address provided. If the information you provide on the form justifies further action, you’ll be contacted by a Natural England Wildlife Adviser to discuss the problem and, if appropriate, arrange a site visit.
During the site visit the Wildlife Adviser will carry out an independent assessment of the damage and the rabbit infestation, and will provide advice on rabbit control.
The Wildlife Adviser will also wish to speak to your neighbour and to assess the rabbit infestation on their land. Where possible, a voluntary agreement to solve the problem between all parties will be encouraged.
