Where trees are retained on a proposed development site it is important to consider
how plant and machinery including cranes will access the site and be able to
undertake the construction operations without the need to remove the tree protection
fencing around the RPA. A schedule of tree works for all the retained trees specifying
pruning and other remedial or preventative work, whether for physiological, hazard
abatement, aesthetic or operational reasons should accompany the application. All
tree works shall be carried out in accordance with BS3998, 1989, Recommendations
for tree work.
Written proof of the credentials of the arboricultural contractor instructed
to carry out the scheduled tree works should also be supplied.
Peter Jackson Developments based in Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle, Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire, provide arboriculture, architecture services, planning services, and landscape design.
