Well  no reductions are only a last resort and  a compromise, whilst
reducing amenity they allow a tree to be maintained or extend its useful
life expectancy.  Thus meeting the grounds of the TPO (as a tree with
some amenity is maintained).

This is a pretty basic question I'm afraid caused by lack of
fundamental
knowledge of TPOs (being a TPO client rather than provider)

When consent is given to reduce a tree by a given % is that done
recognising
a loss in amenity or stating there is no loss in amenity?

If it's the former I imagine consent should not have been given.

If, however, it is considered no loss in amenity (otherwise you may as
well
just take away the TPO) then should any other applicants in that LPA
area
bother to ask for consent to reduce trees bearing in mind the local
authority has already clearly indicated that no loss of amenity has
occurred
and if no loss of amenity occurs no offence has taken place.
