Exemptions

9.3 Exemptions from the requirement to give a section 211 notice are set out 
in the 1999 Regulations.109 You do not have to give the LPA six weeks' notice:

(1) for cutting down trees in accordance with a felling licence granted by 
the Forestry Commission or a plan of operations approved by the Commission 
under one of their grant schemes,

(2) for work which is exempt from the requirement to apply for consent under 
a TPO (for more details see Chapter 6 of this Guide),110

(3) for work carried out by, or on behalf of, the LPA (ie the Council as a 
whole and not just its planning department),

(4) for work on a tree with a diameter not exceeding 75 millimetres (or 100 
millimetres if cutting down trees to improve the growth of other trees, ie 
thinning operations).111

 Does anyone know if the wording of the TCPA 1999 Part 3 section 10.1
(Exemptions)

"Section 211 (preservation of trees in Conservation Areas) shall not
apply to

(d) the cutting down, uprooting, topping or lopping of a tree by, or on
behalf of, a local planning authority"

Can be interpreted as meaning that the local authority need not always
apply for planningpermission to fell trees in CAs?

It seems a bit vague.
