Tree Survey Leeds: Planning and Development
Tree Survey, Leeds
Tree surveys and tree 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 surveys are needed to ensure the safety of trees as local authorities are required to assess the potential impact that a development could have on surrounding trees. This is especially relevant 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 (TPO), and root protection areas.
If you require a tree survey, you are likely to need a number of tree services from an arboricultural consultant. A professional consultancy can help you to meet tree survey requirements for obtaining planning permission. This may also be required when carrying out tree surgery by a tree surgeon.
