Tree Reports for Planning Applications

If you are planning an extension or new build in your garden and there are trees nearby (either in your garden or outside of it) then the local planning authority are likely to request a tree survey, impacts assessment and tree protection plan.

For small construction projects on domestic sites, the information required may be quite brief and consist of annotated plans and a tree schedule, but if the proposal could affect a significant tree then the level of detail required could go up.

BS5837:2012 contains recommendations and guidance for trees in relation to design, demolition and construction.  Barton Hyett Associates provides reports compliant with this standard, but we also recognise that every site is different and  that there are rarely ‘one-size fits all’ solutions, so we work collaboratively with our clients to provide appropriate solutions that are effective and cost-efficient.
