action
Revise the NPPF to include the protection of all and particularly old hedgerows.
background
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) guides local authorities in relation to planning decisions. The NPPF has a glaring omission; the word ‘hedge’ does not exist anywhere in the document, and consequently hedges are the first casualty of greenfield site or 'garden grabbing' developments.
additional details
Following campaigns from the Woodland Trust & other charities the NPPF was amended to state “development resulting in the loss or deterioration of irreplaceable habitats (such as ancient woodland and ancient or veteran trees) should be refused.” Hedges and hedgerows – especially old ones - must be considered in the NPPF and given the same protection as ancient and veteran trees or ancient woodland. Ancient hedges are invaluable habitats for birds, mammals and invertebrates. We must protect them!
