Why??  The Perrin judgment said that alternative engineering solutions were 
relevant in considering whether the cutting down, uprooting, topping or 
of any trees was necessary for the prevention or abatement of a nuisance - ie 
determining whether or not the exemption in section 198(6)(b) applied.  This 
separate and distinct from the application and appeals process - as was made
clear in the judgment.  Specifically the Judge indicated (paras 13 and 14) 
the LPA and Secretary of State have wide discretion in deciding TPO 
and appeals which entitles them to take into account a whole range of 
These were set out more fully in para 51 - and include alternative engineering
solutions as well as the amenity value of the tree.
