TVERC was commissioned by West Oxfordshire District Council to carry out a survey of a hedgerow adjacent to the road at Grafton between Clanfield and Lechlade.

The woody species and woodland herbs found were recorded along with structural and contextual information on the hedgerow. The survey and reporting were completed in July 2012.

The results of the survey were used to determine whether the hedgerow met the qualifying criteria for “Important Hedges” (in terms of its wildlife interest), as described within the Hedgerow Regulations 1997. The result enabled West Oxfordshire District Council to decide on an application for a hedgerow removal notice.
