HEDGEROW SURVEYS

Hedgerow

Hedgerow surveys are required where native species-rich or ecologically important hedgerows may be impacted by a project. Hedgerow surveys are designed to collect data to meet the wildlife and landscape criteria listed in the Hedgerow Regulations 1997 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1997/1160/schedule/1/paragraph/6/made).  Hedgerow surveys can be conducted during a single site visit between March and September.
