Trees in conservation areas:
Within a conservation area, trees that have a stem diameter which is bigger than 75 mm when measured at a height of 1.5 metres above ground level are subject to statutory protection.
Before you carry out any work to a tree you need to give the council 6 weeks notice of your intention to do so. The notice can be given by completing the apply to work on protected trees form below or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This allows the council to make a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) and stop the works if they are harmful to a public space or the character of the conservation area.
