Yes. I have used this approach in the reasons for the serving of our latest
TPO (see attachment), although I did fall short of bringing in perceived
psychological benefits. Ummm....blue touch paper - I am expecting a degree
of bother with this, as the application is for retention of a tarmacdam car
park beautifully constructed around a mature CA Beech tree, and the formal
consultation response back to DC is that the applicant should remove the
tarmac through non-mechanical means and to get the ground re-instated in a
professionally recognised manner. I am unsure as to how receptive the
applicant would be to be told how good for his stress the tree is!
