Tree Reports for Planning Applications
If you are planning an extension to your property or a new build and there are trees nearby (either on your property 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 increase.
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.
As such we work collaboratively with our clients to provide appropriate solutions that are effective and cost-efficient for them.
