Root damage from Road building and Drain laying

Subject: Root damage from Road building and Drain laying

Adjacent to my side boundary is a 5 metre wide private drive leading to one
house set in an acre of ground. The boundary is holly hedge plus there are
mature Pine, Birch and Cypressus Leylandi all around 15 metres high growing
ajacent to or straddling the boundary line.  A planning application has been
made to build 12 houses and make this drive up into an adopted road.

Needless to say I am not happy to have a new road 4 feet from my windows,
and I am wondering if there is any valid objection that can be made based on
the root damage that will be inevitable when the essential services of
sewers etc are laid and adequate foundations laid for the road, covering
half their root area. The trees are not currently subject of a TPO, but I
believe this could be arranged for some at least!
