Bill,

I'm pretty sure that if you saw this tree you'd say it had 40 years left
in its current state, despite the proximity to the existing house (it's
probably a little more than 7m away - that was a rough guess).

As for planning conditions - they make absolutely no reference to trees
whatsoever.

I guess I'm clutching at straws here, but I want to be sure that I've
explored every possible avenue for trying to retain this tree. I know
the local tree preservation society have got wind of this and have
contacted the local press. Maybe I should do nothing, let the s**t hit
the fan and embarrass the District Council into adopting more effective
consultation procedures.

An 80 foot Beech 7 metres from an existing property is unlikely to have
40 years of life in front of it...... Therefore it isn't going to be 'A'

category....

As for the other query, sorry Ruth, they're a flippin nuisance those
District Councils aren't they? Won't there be some sort of boilerplate
planning condition saying "as long as the trees aren't damaged?"

I was shown a permission granting permission to prune a branch off a
Beech tree which would have literally removed 75% of the crown of the
tree and left a massive great wound. But the permission said the work
had to be inaccordance with BS3998. Result was the permssion was
worthless and I told the client so. 
So he's writing for permission to fell the tree which is what he really
wanted anyway.

Can you not claim the planning permission cannot meet its own
conditions? You could cause a right stink which might just get the
appropriate wrists slapped?

Bill.
