Removing Ditch

    Just looking for advice on implications of removing a ditch, bought a neighbouring field and would like to remove the ditch between the two fields, I think there are penalties in relation to SFP but would it be possible to get permission from the department to do so.

  • I think it might be possible if you plant the equivalent amount of hedge somewhere else on the farm first, check with dept as I could be wrong on this.

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.





  • Yes it is possible to remove the ditch provided you raplace the ditch you are going to remove. Under the new EIA rules you have to apply for a screening if the ditch is longer than 500 meters. Also if you are in Reps 3 check with your planner.




  • a neighbour of mine got done for bulldozeing a ditch during the rabbit breeding season
    wouldnt mind only the place was crawling with them

    I would say he got done for illegally removing a ditch during the nesting season for birds, which runs from March till August under the Wildlife Act. No such provisions apply to rabbits specifically.
