Tree Survey Berkshire: Planning and Development

Tree survey Berkshire



When making a planning application for a development, you may be required to undertake a tree assessment, also known as an arboricultural survey. . Professional tree surveys and arboricultural reports will be required if a proposed development site is located within close proximity to trees and woodland. These types of surveys are needed to ensure that trees are not impacted by the development.

Tree surveys for planning 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 (TPOs), and root protection areas.

When applying for planning permission, it may be worth checking with your local planning authority or a tree surveyor to find out if a tree survey or tree report will be required to carry out your planned work.

 For larger developments or those in environmentally sensitive areas, an Environmental Impact Assessment may be required, which could include a tree survey as part of the broader assessment process.
