Tree Survey Sheffield: Planning and Development

Tree Survey, Sheffield

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 on the site. This is because local authorities are required to assess the potential liabilities that a development could have on surrounding trees.

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 tree consultation can help you to meet tree survey requirements for obtaining planning permission.
