Tree Survey Scotland: Planning and Development

Tree Survey, Scotland

When requesting planning permission for a development, a tree survey may need to be undertaken. Tree surveys and reports will be required if a potential development site will be within close proximity to protected trees and woodland. These types of surveys are needed as local authorities are required to assess the potential impact that a proposed development could have on the surrounding trees if a planning application is submitted.

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 development requires a tree survey, Scotland, you will need the extensive range of services from a tree consultancy. A tree consultancy can help you to meet tree survey requirements to obtain planning permission.
