Tree Survey Shropshire: Planning and Development
Tree Survey Shropshire
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 trees and woodland. These types of surveys are needed as local authorities in designated areas are required to review and assess the potential tree problems and the impact that a 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/ arboricultural report, you will need the extensive range of tree works services from one of our experienced consultants in order to meet tree survey requirements to obtain planning permission.
Planning applications and any subsequent development should, when suitable, adhere to the procedures and suggestions outlined in British Standard BS5837 2012 (Trees in Relation To Design, Demolition and Construction).
