mischievous applications

Subject: mischievous applications

Our householder has a fine tree but resents it bitterly and has applied to
fell perhaps 4 times over the last ten years. It went to appeal around 2
years ago which the council won then another app came in which I attended.
The householder said she would apply to fell annually in order to transfer
liability when it fell down, to the LPA. I think I understand the
circumstances when compensation is payable (and quite right too)but I can't
help thinking this is a mischievous misuse of the planning system. I'm due
to visit again and its less than 6 months since the last refusal. What can I
do? Incidentally she steadfastly refuses to engage a consultant regarding it
as a waste of money - what a vexatious person!
