Tree Survey Nottingham: Planning and Development
Tree Survey, Nottingham
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 liabilities 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 (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 a tree consultancy. 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.
