regarding the rules about pruning trees within a CONSERVATION AREA
Langford and Ulting Parish's
In a Conservation Area, any works to trees measuring 75mm or over diameter at 1.5m from the ground require 6 weeks prior notification to us before they are carried out, we would then consult the Parish/Town council concerned for their comments.
Rules regarding trees and development depend largely on what conditions have been applied to the planning permission. If there are trees on site to be retained we always refer developers to BS5837:2005 'Trees in Relation to Construction - Recommendations' which is the current British standard they are required to follow. In addition to this, you should know that Planning permission over-rides tree protection by TPO or conservation area. Developers are allowed to remove or prune any tree that is in the way of them carrying out works that have planning permission.
