Tree Survey Bedfordshire: Planning and Development
Tree Survey Bedfordshire
When requesting planning permission for a development, a tree survey may need to be undertaken. These types of surveys are needed as local authorities in designated areas are required to assess the potential risk that a development could have on the surrounding trees as part of a planning application.
Tree surveys are necessary as retained trees are protected under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 and the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. This protection is typically in the form of conservation areas, Tree Preservation Orders (TPO), and root protection areas.
Bedfordshire Tree Surveyors
A tree surveyor is a professional that is qualified in tree and woodland management. They carry out tree surveys and prepare tree reports for clients regarding individual trees or all trees on a site. On development sites where retained trees are endangered by construction work, a consultant may be required to provide management recommendations and specific mitigation measures that must be taken when work is carried out.
