What's that dreadful song from that Disney film again? Oh yes # let it go, let it go.....
I also have ivy against a fence which I planted AWB
If you want it all out, DOS1, the best way is to cut at the roots and then 'very carefully' apply weedkiller to the new growth. However, ivy isn't that easy to eradicate, and it would need a good few applications. It also attaches as it goes along, so you'll need to be very patient to get every bit. Digging it it out would be pretty difficult if it's in a mixed hedge.
Perhaps a compromise as previously suggested would be the best way to go. It will be a big job to get out if it's very established.
