I don't have this although you will find it in the Encyclopaedia.  You can
subscribe to the complete
Planning Service on Line for about £2.5K per annum - great value as it
includes not only the
Encyclopaedia, but the Bulletins, Updates, Cases, Court Reports etc.

In answer to your question - a recent (December 2000) case found that the
Secretary of State was not
a fair and independent tribunal to which one can appeal.  The present
of appeals contravenes
section 6 of the Human Rights Act.  The Court ruled, and this is subject
Appeal to the Lords, that
the Secretary of State is both 'Policy Maker and Decision Taker'
he cannot be the final judge
in appeals, particularly where the outcome could conflict with Policy.
suggestion is that the Inspectorate
be moved to the Lord Chancellor's Dept. or be constituted as a completely
independent body, separate from the
Executive (Government).  Significant stuff or what?  It relates directly
back to your query, although the Court
did imply that at a local level, one always had the right of appeal to an
inspector, who was independent.  However,
the DETR Arboriculturists are not independent as they are employed
by the DETR and not through
the Inspectorate.

This is analysed in full in the January Bulletin which is available free
from Sweet & Maxwell  Follow the link 'Local Law' and then login for
the Bulletin.  Its free
but you have to register.  The rest costs upwards of £2.5K per annum.  But
Hey, don't worry, when all
you guys sign up for the BSc Arboriculture on line, you will have access
the service via the Myerscough
College Library

Anyone out there have the context of, or a URL to, Stirk v Bridgnorth
District Council (1997) 73 P&CR 439? With regard to the ruling that since
the Local Planning Authority (LPA) is 'both proposer and judge' when
considering objections to Tree Preservation Orders (TPO),

'...the obligation to deal thoroughly, conscientiously and fairly with any
objection (is) enhanced...'

In advance, thanks for your help.
