How do I find out if my site falls into a Conservation Area, is subject to a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or is covered by planning constraints?
Your local authority will be able to inform what constraints you have on your site, whether they are planning applications, Tree Preservation Orders or if your site falls into a Conservation Area. This can be done by phone, e-mail or fax. A.T.S. are able to do these checks for you, or give you advice on how to undertake the checks.
Do I need permission from a Local Authority before I undertake tree works?
Permission needs to be granted from a Local Authority if the site falls into a Conservation Area, is subject to a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or is covered by planning constraints.
