Planning and Development

Planning and DevelopmentWhere development proposals may have an impact on trees local planning authorities often require that developers commission a tree survey in accordance with the British Standard BS5837:2012 Trees in relation to design, demolition and construction- Recommendations.

Our development surveys are carried out in accordance with BS5837:2012, will meet the requirements of the local planning authority and will ultimately help secure planning consent.  Our Arboricultural Method Statements will ensure that trees on the site are protected from development activity and will ultimately add value to a completed development.

Information we provide in support of a planning application includes:

  • Arboricultural Constraints Report: In which the constraints of the trees (root protection areas, crown spreads etc.) are identified by means of a site survey in order to inform the site design layout, includes an Autocad Tree Constraints Plan
  • Arboricultural Impact Assessment: An assessment of the impact the development will have on the trees and of the impact retained trees will have post development
  • Arboricultural Method Statement: A clear specification for the method of protecting retained trees throughout the development, includes an Auto Cad tree protection plan

Other related services we offer include:

  • Pre development site surveys: To assess development feasibility
  • Arboricultural clerk of works: To oversee arboricultural operations

We can also secure planning consent for tree work where trees are covered by Tree Preservation Orders and can appeal (if there is justification) against work application refusals by local planning authorities.

If you are considering developing a site with trees in close proximity or have been asked to provide an arboricultural report in support of an application please contact us to see how we can be of service.
