Tree Survey Essex: Planning and Development
Tree Survey, Essex
Tree surveys and reports will often be required for planning applications if a potential development site will be within close proximity to trees and woodland. These types of tree surveys are needed as local planning authorities in designated areas are required to review and assess the potential impact that a development could have on the surrounding trees, especially if it may involve tree removal.
Detailed 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.
If your planned development is within close proximity to trees, you are likely to need a number of tree services from an arboricultural consultancy in order to meet tree survey requirements for obtaining planning permission and carrying out tree surgery.
