In order to gain planning approval we needed to create a visibility splay to improve the access to one of our rural sites. This was done by moving the existing roadside hedge and setting it back in a new position.
Relocating a hedge is a sustainable approach to improving access to highways, as opposed to ripping the hedge out and replacing with a wall or fence. It's great for biodiversity and maintaining a natural boundary between the highway and the site.
Relocation needs to be done during winter in order not to disturb nesting birds and other wildlife.
