Planning Applications Services - Tree Reports and Surveys

If you are a property developer and there are trees on your intended construction site, you will need the help and advice of our professional arboriculturist to ensure that planning permission is granted as speedily as possible. This also applies to property owners wishing to build a house extension in close proximity to trees. We advise all our clients to contact us early on in the application stage to avoid expensive planning delays and costly redesigns.

Local Planning Authorities have a duty to ensure the protection of trees when giving planning permission for construction projects. The presence of trees with a TPO ( Tree Preservation Order) and trees within Conservation Areas will also impact on the feasibility of the design.

Without the correct tree information your application is likely to be invalidated or refused. In the event that Planning Permission is refused, we may be able to help with our Planning Appeals Service.

Our Planning Applications Services include
  • BS 5837:2012 compliant Tree Reports & Surveys
  • Arboricultural Method Statements
  • Arboricultural Impact Statements
  • Tree Protection Plans
  • Tree Retention and Removal Plans
  • Post Landscape Design Plans
  • Ongoing Construction Site Supervision
  • Feasibility Studies

On of the issues to consider is that the application will fail if it results in the demise of trees that are capable of making an important contribution to the look and feel of the area. Conditional Planning Permission may be granted in order to to retain the maximum number of trees and to ensure their protection during construction.
